A group of fishermen has launched a protest in Thalpaduwa area, Mannar, urging authorities to lift the ban on the use of ‘Surukku’ fishing nets.

The fishermen blocked the road to Thalpaduwa village and protested in the rain. They claimed that small scale fishermen cannot continue their livelihood without the usage of Surukku fishing nets.

The group was dispersed after TNA MP Charles Nirmalanadan promised to discuss the matter with Fisheries Minister and authorities.
