Fishermen issue: official to visit Colombo
Posted in Local News
India will soon send a senior official to Sri Lanka to hold talks on the regular occurrence of action against Tamil Nadu fishermen by the authorities there.
“This cannot go on; we have to come to a firm understanding with the government of Sri Lanka. Our Joint Secretary would go to Sri Lanka and prepare [the] ground [for it],” External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna told journalists on Monday.
He was responding to a question on the arrest and release of 14 fishermen from Tamil Nadu on Monday.

The Hon Mr Krishna is awfully worried about the 14 Indian fisherman. 24 months ago, he aided a genocidal army, stood by and watched the slaughter of 40,000 tamil civilians in Sri Lanka.
I fully support the Sri Lankan Navy in apprehending rogue fishermen from India who illegally cross our maritime borders to poach valuable oceanic resources.
The law is supreme and should be applied to all offenders irrespective of the offender being Mr Krisna’s countryman or not.
Are these Indian fishermen crossing into Sri Lankan waters to visit their long lost Kalla T relatives in the North? They shouldn’t be worried as the Parliamentary Committee that is to develop a solution to the Kalla T problem will consider the mass expatriation solution.
Whe the mass expatriation solution is adopted, SL’s Kalla T’s can move across to Big Mama Land and live happily ever after with their fishermen brothers.
