Launching a blistering attack on Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, AIADMK supreme and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa said the root cause of the problems and hardships faced by Tamil Nadu fishermen was the ceding of Katchathivu to Sri Lanka by former prime minister Indira Gandhi through the accords signed in 1974 and 1976 when DMK chief M Karunanidhi was the Chief Minister.

AIADMK supremo and Chief minister J. Jayalalithaa charged the Congress with showing concern for the fishermen only to gain political mileage.

Recalling that the Congress-led government, in its counter affidavit filed against her petition on retrieval of Katchatheevu, the congress had declared that the islet was not part of India. Jayalalithaa then asked if this was the concern shown by the Congress government for Tamil Nadu fishermen?

The Chief Minister raised the questions at an election rally in Theradi, Tiruvotriyur.

Pointing out that she had been writing letters to the Prime Minister almost on a daily basis to take concrete steps to put an end to the woes of Tamil Nadu fishermen, Jayalalithaa said the Centre had failed to act on her requests.
