Stop bull trawling

There was a fierce fight between Sri Lankan Fishermen and Tamilnadu Mechanised boats who are doing bull trawling in Rameswaram and Kachiadeepu area.. Bull trawling is banned. And hence Ramnadu Traditional Fish Workers Union is also opposing bull trawling. This clash has ended in the death of one of the fishermen. Boats were destroyed. The Government is not maintaining the law and order and not implementing the Tamilnadu Marine Fishing Regulation Act. As a result this continuous law and order problem occurs.

Ramnadu Traditional Fishworkers’ Union President Paulsamy says that the union is going to start to start agitation stop Bull Trawling Completely. This is important to maintain peace between India and Sri Lanka. Thomas Kocherry in a special Press note says that Government of Tamilnadu is responsible for the Law and Problem arisen in Rameswaram area. Let them stop it by implementing Marine Fishing Regulation Act.
