Bengaluru, Nov 21: The assistance and subsidies granted to fisherfolk women to the men will be considered sympathetically by the State Government, promised Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in Bengaluru on Tuesday.

Participating in International Fisheries Day organised in Vidhana Soudha, he also said the government would consider establishing a Fisheries University in the State next year.

He said the State Government is committed to sympathetically view the problems of the fisherfolk and would solve them.

“Fish is an important component of our food culture and traditions. Eating fish is healthy and the government will take all steps to help in ensuring the breeding of fish,’’ he said.

He reiterated his commitment to solve the problems of the fisherfolk and had fought for better facilities for the community when he was in the opposition. It was the Congress government which had increased the assistance of Rs 50,000 given to fisherwomen to Rs 3 lakh, he said and assured that construction of the houses for the community will be taken up next year.

Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar, Fisheries and Ports Minister Mankale S Vaidya and Chief Minister’s Political Secretary Govindaraju were present
