CHENNAI: Seeking the personal intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve the fishermen issue, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has expressed hope for a decisive shift in stance on the part of the Centre in solving the issue and finding a permanent solution through ‘appropriate and calibrated set of actions’.

“This would be in sharp contrast to the passive and immobile policy paralysis that characterized the approach of the UPA government for several years. There is high expectation that the new NDA-led government would act decisively on this sensitive issue,” read her letter to the PM.

“I urge your personal intervention in the matter and request you to direct the Ministry of External Affairs to take up the matter with the Lankan authorities in a concrete and decisive manner so as to secure the release of 33 fishermen and their seven fishing boats at the earliest,” she added.
