If the Indian Navy “continues to fail to protect” Tamil Nadu fishermen from attacks by the Sri Lankan navy, the State government should then impart weapons training to fishermen to defend themselves from being hunted down on the high seas, Tamil Nationalist Movement leader, Pazha. Nedumaran has said.

Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, Mr. Nedumaran said the transfer of ‘Katchatheevu’ to Sri Lanka did not have legal backing as the then government failed to get Parliament’s consent for this transfer.

Hence, the present Bharatiya Janata Party government should make all-out efforts to get back the strategic island from Sri Lanka, which was working clandestinely to allow China to control Katchateevu, he said.(The Hindu)

    Both sides can carry weapons and fight each other as 80pc Sl and 100 pc Tamil Nadu Tamils could show their might.I am sure the 80 pc SL will massacer the cowards of Tamil Nadu.

    Making another LTTE.

    Very often the SL navy entered into Indian water and arrested the TN fishermen. Teach the SL navy to respect the international maritime and human beings.

    Sammy Sunday, 10 August 2014 01:48 PM

    Idiot! At least now the fisherman are only arrested. If arms are provided the Sri Lankan Navy will have the right to shoot them.

    Instead of arms give the GPSs to know which side of the maritime border to stay on.

    He is indirectly telling he wants to create a Tamil Navy.
    God bless India.

    It's not a bad idea at all.

    Minister Sunday, 10 August 2014 06:18 AM

    Good. Give them guns and teach them to stay away from Sri Lankan waters. Then all the trouble over.

    TripleX Sunday, 10 August 2014 07:23 AM

    So Tamil Nadu wants to legalise fish pirates.

    roshan Monday, 11 August 2014 05:05 AM

    please do that so our navy can destroy them out at sea rather than bringing them here and feeding from our money

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 10 August 2014 07:37 AM

    Shades of Indira Gandhi government providing arms training to tiger cubs who formed the LTTE to destabilize Sri Lanka. That game is over and cannot be repeated however much jokers like Nedumaran try to do.

    kith udugama Monday, 11 August 2014 05:09 AM

    Should be thrown to the sharks !!!
