Missing Udupi boat: Rahul to write to Modi to expedite search of fishermen

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi

Udupi, Mar 14: The issue of the seven fishermen who went missing with their boat Suvarna Tribuja in December was raised by Kiran Udyavar, secretary of National Congress Fishermen Committee at National Fishermen Parliament (NFP) held at Thriprayar in Kerala on March 14.

“It is 89 days since they went missing but there is not a single clue. State government has worked hard on this case, but Union government is doing nothing in order to finding the missing seven fishermen. Their families are in grief and have decided to voluntarily boycott Lok Sabha elections,” Kiran, a resident of Udupi told at NFP.

Kiran also called Modi fake. “He had said that he will send armed forces to find the fishermen. However, today he seems to have forgotten the incident. Why has he not succeeded in locating the missing boat? He used to say he will attack Pakistani terrorists and their camps. Let him do our work first. Let him put effort in finding those seven lives,” Kiran stressed.

AICC president Rahul Gandhi reacted to Kiran’s questions and said he will send a letter to Narendra Modi to speed up the search operations. “It is true that Modi has no concern about farmers and fishermen and weaker sections. His first priority is towards Ambani, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi. Modi is protecting these capitalists,” Gandhi alleged.

“Modi government is for the capitalists while Congress supports weaker sections, poor people and the farmers. Though I am in the opposition party, I can publicize this matter,” Rahul assured.

U R Sabhapathi, working president of All India Fishermen Congress participated in the programme.

    First let him explain what state govt has done to locate the missing fishermen
    I am shocked to hear pappu saying military first preference is to locate the missing person rather than fighting /patrolling at border
