Ceding Kachatheeuw unconstitutional: Tamil Nadu CM

Tamil Nadu Chief Minsiter Jayalalitha has stated that ceding Katchatheewu to Sri Lanka was unconstitutional and it deprived Tamil Nadu fishermen of their historic rights to fish in traditional waters of Palk Strait.

In a letter to Indian Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi, she charged that the Centre has ignored the statement made by Tamil Nadu and not taken appropriate measures to bring relief to Tamil Nadu fishermen whose livelihood is in jeopardy.

She appealed to Modi to take personal interest to address the issue.
