Indian media states that The National Fishworkers Forum (NFF) has sought PM Narendra Modi’s intervention to work out a permanent solution to the conflicts in Palk strait between Indian and Sri Lankan fishermen and also take measures for retrieval of Katchatheevu.

Indian media reports that in a letter to Modi, NFF chairperson M Ilango has urged him to take steps to permanently resolve the  problems in fishing. This should be arrived at through high level meetings between the concerned Ministers and top officials of both the countries besides consultation with the CM of Tamil Nadu.

He said fishermen from Tamil Nadu and Puducehrry had pinned their hopes on BJP government for retrieval of the island as a permanent solution to the issue.
