Senior Congress leader and Union Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan has charged that the Jayalalithaa government had sabotaged the second round of talks between representatives of Tamil Nadu fishermen and their Sri Lankan counterparts when the Centre was keen on arranging the talks to find an amicable solution to the vexatious issue.
 
Addressing an election rally in support of party nominee Su. Thirunavukkarasar here on Sunday, he said after the first round of talks held in Chennai on January 27, 2014, the fishermen could have found a solution to their problems in the second round of talks, scheduled to be held in Colombo, but the AIADMK government ‘had sabotaged’ the talks.
 
Claiming credit to the Centre for the first round of talks he said that the fishermen could have found an amicable solution to their problem had the second round of talks was held as scheduled. “But the ruling AIADMK government had stopped and delayed the talks,” he alleged.
 
Asserting that the centrally sponsored schemes had contributed for the development of the State despite lack of support from the State government, Mr. Vasan alleged that the State had placed stumbling blocks for many of the Central government projects such as the Sethusamudram shipping channel project.(The Hindu)
