In an effort to bank on the goodwill that it received when five fishermen from Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu who were awarded capital punishment were repatriated from Sri Lankan prisons, BJP leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his Government at the Centre was not just a saviour of the fishing folk, but was also like the father and mother to them, Indian media reports.

“I urged Sri Lanka to release the five fishermen rather than just reducing their punishment from death penalty to life sentence. I told them I am like their father and mother,” said Modi at a public meeting at Thethakudi, an interior village near Vedaranyam. The prime minister had met the five at the helipad before arriving at the venue.
