The Acting Mayor of Jaffna had written to the NP Governor that, the chance Corona Spreading here through the transgressing Indian Fishermen is there. He had further said in his letter that the Indian fishermen are exploiting the livelihood of our fishermen.
We had to pay attention on the following in view of the Indian fishermen undertaking fishing in Sri Lankan water especially in the Northern waters:
Our fisher families who are solely dependent on fishing are worse affected by the transgressing fishing of Indian Fishermen losing their income and facing severe problems.
In a context where the affectation by Covid 19 is increasing in India, our people who are moving towards a smooth situation relevant to Covid 19 may be affected by the increase in Covid 19 impacts.
Taking the above into consideration please take all action possible to curtail the transgression of Indian fishermen so that the risk of Corona spreading may be minimized here, he had said
