Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram recently held a high-level meeting at the Secretariat to work out the modalities of possibly setting up a talks table between Sri Lankan and Indian fishermen organizations.

The Chief Minister had in September written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking him to take steps to hold talks between fishermen organizations of both countries here in December.

She had demanded that the Tamil Nadu government be included as a stakeholder in the talks.

Jayalalithaa’s letter to the PM had come after fishermen organizations petitioned her to help organise the talks.

Representatives of the organisation expressed a keen interest in finding a solution to the issue, and sought Jayalalithaa’s intervention after meeting with Sri Lanka’s Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa in New Delhi in July.
