Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha Jeyaram urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to protect the fishing rights of Indian fishermen and to retrieve the Kachchatheevu islet from Sri Lanka.

Jayalalithaa presented a memorandum with various demands to Modi, who went to her residence after launching the National Handloom Day and India Handloom brand there.

In her memorandum, Jayalalithaa said that Katchatheevu was an island of 285 acres off Rameswaram in the narrow Palk Strait that divides Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka and was once a part of Ramanathapuram district.

As per the agreements entered into in 1974 and 1976, Katchatheevu was ceded to Sri Lanka.
