Tamil Nadu fishermen union will meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today to give a petition demanding uninterrupted fishing rights in the Sri Lankan waters.

Sri Lankan fishermen of the Tamil-majority Northern Province of the island have, for long, accused their Tamil Nadu counterparts of destroying their livelihoods by encroaching and using destructive bottom-trawling practices. The Sri Lankan Navy periodically arrests Indian fishermen on charges of engaging in illegal fishing methods.

TN fishermen plan to give a petition to the Minister demanding that Sri Lankan fishermen stay away from the sea on days they go fishing.
