Udupi: Missing fishermen - Now should I jump into sea to trace them, asks Fisheries minister


Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi

Udupi, Jan 8: The government has directed all its forces to search for the missing fishermen; however in spite of that, not even one clue has been obtained, said state Animal Husbandry and Fisheries minister Venkatarao Nadagouda.

Expressing his helplessness on tracing the seven fishermen on boat Suvarna Tribhuja, who reportedly went untraceable on December 15 off the coast of Goa, the minister said that protest is not a solution, even though he is not against the ones who are protesting.

“The government has taken all possible steps it could. Instead of protesting, if the fishermen leaders gave us ideas and solutions, we are open on incorporating them. We have even conducted search operations with helicopters. Now that they are untraceable should I jump to the sea to trace them?” he questioned.

Nadagouda said that he is visiting the houses of fishermen in Udupi, Malpe and Kumta.

“A letter has also been written to the Central government. The state government understands the panic of the fishing community and the family of the missing fishermen. Even the government has the same concern and is putting all efforts to get clues,” he said.

He added that the search operations conducted did not show any traces of oil spill or debris to conclude that the boat has met with a mishap.

He requested the fishermen community to cooperate with the government and provide solutions to trace the missing fishermen.

    what the Minister expressed could be justified.
    He says whatever efforts and attempts possible have been explored and they could not find or come across any possible clues.
    Now time is ripe to compensate the family members and if possible to provide suitable jobs to their grown up children in any government or private sectors.

    To compensate, it has to be confirmed that these people died in genuine circumstances...and not fled or escaped....if they transgressed into other terriotory or some non-fishing activities, there is chance that they may be under captivity.

    BJP MP MLA's are doing their job & trying level best to trace these fishermen. jumping into sea is not a solution for this case. ofcourse you could have supporter of congress but don't try to coverup the inefficiency of your party leader.

    This is the attitude of JDS and Cong towards coastal people. That is the reason why sensible people do not elect them.

    I totally agree with you. bcoz in every cow theft case the criminals are able to escape & they didn't arrested in later date also. these criminals thought that the cow theft is legalised & there is no punishment for that. shameless people.

    Poor minister is just as helpless as all of us - No one loves to loose them!

    Badgering the minister (who has made every effort) is insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fishermen must be trained to carry some sort system to relay distress! At least this may protect
    future fishermen.
