Fishworkers seek separate Ministry

Our Bureau

CHENNAI, April 19

FISHWORKER organisations under the National Fishworkers Forum (NFF) are planning `vehicle yatras' concurrently along both the coasts during the first fortnight of May. This is to demand the implementation of a charter of 42 demands.

According to a NFF press release, one vehicle yatra will start from Kakkadwip in West Bengal and the other one would start from Ummergam in Maharashtra. Both these yatras will start on May 1 and will meet at Thiruvananthapuram on May 14.

Among the demands are: Availability of diesel at subsidised rates for fishing boats, setting up of a separate Ministry for fisheries at the Centre and withdrawal of the Aquaculture Authority Bill.
