* India's Prime Ministerial candidate promises to resolve fishermen issue with Sri Lanka
Fri, Apr 18, 2014, 11:23 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 18, Ramanathapruam: A Bhaathiya Janatha Party (BJP)-led government under Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister would solve the nagging issue between the Tamil Nadu fishermen and their Sri Lankan counterparts, the party has asserted.

Addressing a public meeting in Ramanathapruam district of Tamil Nadu, Modi, the BJP's prime ministerial candidate promised the fishermen in the state that he would do everything for their welfare and to protect them.

Modi acknowledging that fishermen in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu face many difficulties, has criticized the Central Indian government for failing to take measures to prevent the continuing attacks on Indian fishermen by the navies of the neighboring countries.

"The 'weak Indian government at the Centre' has failed to protect fishermen in the country," Modi has said.

He has asserted that a BJP-led coalition would emerge as an alternative to both major Tamil parties, the DMK and the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu.
