A request from the Arch Bishop to President.-Video
His Eminence Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith says that he requests the President to grant the fuel subsidy to fishermen.
The Negombo fishermen had launched a satyagraha in the Municipal Council premises last Monday saying that the fuel subsidy that the Government had given had been stopped from about 10 months.
While they began a fast-unto-death yesterday since there was no proper result from the satyagraha, the Archbishop visited the site.
Meanwhile Negombo Rural Fisheries Organisation Secretary Mervyn Patrick said that all fishermen from Wennappuwa to Chilaw would come walking from Katuneriya to the Negombo Municipal Council today as a support for the fast.
