The fast launched  by Tamil Nadu fishermen demanding that the new fisheries act passed in Sri Lanka be revoked , came to an end yesterday.

According to Indian Media reports, the fast was halted upon agreements arrived at, following discussions held with Tamil Nadu fisheries officials.

Fisheries associations requested Indian premier Narendra Modi to persuade the Sri Lankan government to repeal the act.

According to the new act, Tamil Nadu fishermen cannot cross maritime borders.

However, the fishermen claimed that they have a right to fish in the Palk Strait.
