Fishermen of Rameswaram launched a strike, protesting against the continuing arrests of fishermen by the Sri Lankan navy and demanding a permanent solution to the problem.

About 3,700 fishermen in Rameswaram began the strike, while about 1,000 Pamban fishermen went on a day’s strike expressing solidarity with them.

However, about 3,000 fishermen in Mandapam did not join the strike.

Leaders of 11 fishermen associations in Rameswaram met on Sunday evening and decided to launch the strike to draw the attention of the State and Central governments to their plight and urge them to take steps to arrive at a permanent solution for peaceful fishing in the Palk Strait.
