President promises immediate relief for fishermen
President Mahinda Rajapaksa promised immediate relief to fishermen during a visit to the Tangalle fisheries harbour yesterday.
The President who met fishermen during a sudden inspection tour of the harbour told them that the government would take immediate measures to identify issues pertaining to the fisheries sector and would provide viable solutions at the earliest possible.
He said that arrangements are being already made to address welfare and other issues faced by the fishermen.
On the occasion the fishermen too made the President aware of their thoughts on the progress of the sector in recent times, the difficulties faced by them and problems pertaining to the sector as a whole.
They also told the President that they would not support certain elements who were trying to provoke fishermen in order to achieve their petty objectives.
They also said that they appreciate the decision to provide concessions.
President Rajapaksa during the visit also inspected the refrigeration facilities and boat workshop at the harbour. There are more than 300 boats which operate from the harbour with over1000 families depending on the income generated.
The President yesterday also visited the beach park in Tangalle managed by the Municipal Council spoke to the people who were in the park.

The guys in their sarongs ought to be careful of the fish taking life and running up their attire and biting off their private bits for making more false promises!
The man in focus in this picture bears a striking resemblance to the “settapochchi” man.
They do have similar character traits.
The above two morons are diaspora Tamils with miniscule brains. That is why they come-up with such cheap jokes which no one is laughing at. Polmudda’s mind, in particular, is all the time obssessed with sex organs. May be he has a problem in that dept. It is not surprising that these two diaspora Tamils, like most of their kallathini colleagues, cannot talk anything more sensible as we SL Patriots do. It is good they have migrated to other countries to be a problem to them. Eventually, when these countries come to their senses that the Tamil ingrates are robbing them wholesale, they will kick their arses out to Tamil Nadu, where they originated from, to live back in the slums.
Mr Knicker-less Dias has created a new class of Sri Lankans called “diaspora Tamils”. How creative of him.
I am a diaspora tamil domiciled in a foreign land. I took off from Sri Lanka following the racila pogrom of 1983. I was beated to an inch of my life with 12mm thick steel rods by a marauding mob and left to die in a gutter. I was living in a predominant Sinhala area; non of my neighbours and associates form the neighbourhood came to my rescue. I was taken to hospital by a tamil Police SI and was dumped on the verandah for 3 weeks. I was not given food, water or medical care because I was not an “official” patient. A fellow tamil citizen who was fortunate in being admitted as a patient shared his food and medicines and I survived.
I got out of hospital and returned home to find the building burnt and looted. I went back to my workplace to find my tamil boss had been killed at his desk and owners running the business had shut down and vanquished. I had no information about my family.
I lived on the streets of Colombo for 6 months. I was picked up by the Police 3 times in that period and was kept in a Police cell for 1-2 weeks each time.
Eventually I contacted a relative living overseas and was able to catch a flight and seek refugee status in that country.
Tell me, is there anything else I could have done? Why am I being classified as a “diaspora tamil”? What have I done wrong?
You definitely have a grudge against us -the Sinhala people. Please remember that not all Sinhala people are proxy to that horror and the darkest black spot in our long and illustrious history of our Nation.We the majority do still feel bad and condemn the entire episode.It was the darkest age of our times when justice and fair play were thrown into the wilderness by JR-RP combination who thought that they do anything under the sun exept turning a man into a woman and vice versa. Not only you many among the SINHALA were hunted and destroyed.Many intellectuals left our shores in fear.That was the legacy of the time.We sincerely felt for you all and still do feel the same.DEAR PBD, IT IS TIME WE BURY THE HATCHET and face the future for the glory of our progeny.COME LET US BE FRIENDS.
Ah! I am shedding buckets of tears at PB-D’s story. Funny how he was able to measure the rods he was beaten to ‘near death’ with, to the exact mm. I don’t buy his story at all.
Many Tamils sought refuge in the West with concocted stories similar to this. They even beat themselves and cut themselves with knives or got other Tamils to inflict the wounds, so that the scars left will authenticate their story. I know this for a fact, because Tamils have admitted what they did in order to obtain visas and asylum and ultimately citizenship in the West. One Tamil, having got to England, even deliberately let a car run over his leg so that it got crushed. He was then able to claim a huge insurance payout from the car driver. Then he went on to claim huge Disability Living Allowance, Income Support, Housing Benefit and Council Tax from the generous Welfare Benefit of Britain. He even got a flat for himself rent-free. With part of the money he was able to purchase farmland in Yalpanam and a house. Later, he was even able to get a car specially adapted for disabled drivers from the welfare state, stating he needed it in order to attend College for further studies. Not bad for a cheating Tamil! He was helped throughout to cheat by Tamil doctors, lawyers and social workers through a Tamil organisation set-up to assist such cheats. There are many such Tamil cheats through out in the West. I know this story is true because I was told this by the man himself, who committed it and boasted about it as being very clever. To the Tamil organisation who helped him he gave a regular percentage monthly from the State benefits he received. This is collected by the LTTE fund raisers. One can well imagine the amount of money raised by the LTTE in this way throughout the West! There are many others who pretend to be metally ill in order to get such welfare benefits, from the generous West, part of which ends up in the LTTE coffers.
This riots in 1983, were activated by extremists on both sides for material gains. Mostly thugs carried out the offences for sheer sadistic fun and for material gains. In India, even worse religious/racial riots took place with the loss of life running into millions, ever since 1947 independence, on several occasions. What happened in SL in 1983, was nothing compared to what happened in India. Such racial conflicts happened in USA committed by the Ku-Klux-Klan, in Britain and in Arab countries between the Sunni and the Shiaites. In Germany, Russia and in other European countries, progroms against the Jews were carried out. In Israel today, the Jews in turn carry out progroms against the Palestine Arabs, even grabbing their lands. Hence, taken in the context of what has happenned around the world and what is happening even today, what happened in SL in 1983 is a small blip, which cannot be blamed on the majority Sinhala Buddhists, who infact helped the victims and protected them.
PB-D the diaspora Tamil, living on State handouts, by insulting me ‘knicker-less’ shows how puerile he is, and not a decent gentleman!
There he goes agin, the Knicker-less man, the racist bigot he is.
Mr Knicker-less, you continue living in your own fantasy world along with the majority of other Sinhala Citizens, until we arrive.
Mr Knicker-less, stop labelling people and assuming things about others.
Your bigotry will get you, one day, in the near future.
