If Tamil Nadu politicians truly concerns about Lankan Tamils, then first avoid Indian fishermen crossing into SL waters

Long time since the issue with Indian and Sri Lankan fishermen trespass each others waters particularly in the Eastern and Northern parts of the country have come to light but still there has not been a concrete solution found.

Diplomatic talks are said to be going but the “mystery” of fishermen getting killed and who is behind it is still unsolved.

Indian coastal guards arrest Sri Lankan fishermen who said to have crossed the Indian waters and vice versa; Sri Lankan Navy arrests Indian fishermen found poaching in Sri Lankan territorial waters. There were issues where the SL Navy chased away fishermen from Tamil Nadu who crossed Sri Lankan waters. Initially SL Navy was pointed at for the killings of Indian fishermen which SL Navy strongly denied.

It has become a regular practice for Indian fishermen to come to Sri Lankan waters and fish, which is a known factor. There is a story behind. The actual incident is Sri Lankan fish harvest is being literary looted by the Indian fishermen.

Fishing is the main occupation of the people live in Northern and Eastern parts ofSri Lanka. But they lost at least 70 percent of it due to this trespassing of the Indian fishermen. However, south Indian politicians have made sure to interpret this as “innocent Indian fishermen unknowingly crossing over the Sri Lankan waters”.

This is not a new issue but has been happening since the war was going on inSri Lanka. Sri Lankan Navy has spotted hundreds of Indian Trawlers fishing in theSri Lankaterritorial waters. Now this has become a mafia and these fishermen are daring enough to attack and chase away Sri Lankan fishermen.

Indian fishermen have grown so powerful become of the fish mafia leaders in south India. Entire fishing operating in India is ruled by a few boat owners. Many fishermen do work under these boat owners and its wide spread as a network which even has weapons circulating.

The Northern coastal area of Sri Lanka is famous for its big prawns which Indian fishermen have eyed at. Unfortunately the Indian fishermen grab this harvest and earn lump sums by exporting these big prawns to Japan and European countries. Sri Lanka fish harvest has become a famous earning for Indian fishermen.

These Indian boat owners are sponsored by the south Indian politicians. Nothing to surprise; but not to be mistaken as these politicians has sympathy for Tamil people inSri Lanka.

In other words, if Vaiko, Jayalalitha, Seeman or Nedumaran truly concern about the welfare of Sri Lankan Tamils, first and foremost thing to do is avoid Indian fishermen crossing Sri Lankan waters. Fishing is the main way of earning of the Sri Lankan Tamils living in Northern andEastern Sri Lanka. And they should be allowed to enjoy and earn out of the resources belong to their country.

South Indian people along with their corrupt politicians must respect that realty.

 

Due to this mafia, Sri Lanka is loosing a huge income and there is no attention even from the Indian Central government has paid for this issue. Still the discussions are going on and hardly any mechanism has been implemented to solve this issue.

  1. DURING THE UNP REGIME EVERYTHING WAS PEACEFUL. THERE IS NO ATTACK EITHER BY THE SRILANKAN NAVY OR BY THE FISHERMANS. NOW THIS A POLITICAL STUNK PLAYED BY THE BLESSINGS OF THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT

  3. In Waters there is every possibility of each side crossing each other. Only thing could be done is arrest the crossers and take them to your place take all the fish and let them go! Dont care about Vaiko, Jeyalalitha, Seeman or Nedumaran for these issues. They are all politicians. None of them in their families have tamils from srilanka as their daughter in laws or son-in-laws..

    Tamils in India are Indian Tamils, Tamils in Srilanka are Sri Lankan Tamils, Tamils in Malaysia are Malaysian Tamils…language could be same but all from three different countries. Its now right time for the Governments of Malaysia and Sri Lanka to give equal rights to all citizes whether tamils or muslims or chrisitains or sinhaleese or chineese. A tamil should be come a Prime Minsiter or President of Sri Lanka…Indian system of decmoracy and rights to citizens should be adopted. When the Government gives equal rights to all their citizenz..surely Malaysian Tamils and Sri Lankan Tamils will be superior in living than the Tamils in India..which as an Indian Tamil I Welcome! Even after the War of killings for over 30 years and before that War of Pease for over 30 years..how long Sri Lanka Government is going to take time in Scrapping the Law they passed in 1956 making sinhala official language and Buddism as sole religion. Come On Srilanka and Malaysia, give equal righs to all your citizens, then automatically all South Indian Tamil Populations will keep shut their mouth!

    “TamilNadu politicians funding fishermen to cross over to Srilankan waters”

    I ve read many articles such as this, written with rage/anger and without any base evidence to the claims made. If this is to be accepted as true then everything else said about the Srilankan government/army and their killing of Tamils at the latter part of the war should also accepted as true without arguing them.

    how long are you guys going to keep talking about LTTE and Tamil Nadu politicians? When are you going to address the real problem and stop talking about dead LTTE and the useless TamilNadu politicians? If the Sinhala government is not interested in giving equal rights to all its citizens, then how are you guys any better than LTTE or Tamil Nadu politicians who were/are polarised towards one community?
