Protest against Indian fishermen not Singala fishermen

Fishermen in the North yesterday (17) staged a protest against the Indian fishermen poaching in the Sri Lankan waters.

The protest was organised by Tamil national alliance parliamentarian A. Sumanthiran and protesting fishermen were on board around 100 fishing craft sailed from Mullaitivu to Point Pedro urging authorities to intervene to stop Indian fishermen using bottom trawling and damaging to their fishing nets.

But meantime Sri Lankan singala fishermen from the south are poaching in the north and east water with Sri Lankan military support, which does more damage than Indian fishermen. However, no Tamil politicians are interested to intervene that.
