External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid will visit Sri Lanka on October 7 to hold discussions with President Mahinda Rajapaksa and senior officials there on halting the recurring attacks and arrests of Indian fishermen.
He would also raise the issue of freeing the arrested fishermen besides handing over their boats and nets belonging to them. Announcing Khurshid’s visit, Union minister of state in PMO V. Narayanasamy told reporters here on Thursday that the discussions with Lanka would pave way for a permanent solution. “The fishermen along with their properties would return home soon,” he said.
To a query on the opposition in Tamil Nadu against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s participation in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) scheduled in Colombo next month, he said, “the Prime Minister will take a call on that.”(Deccan Cronicle)

You people don't have any other things to do rather harassing our country by way of this fishermen problem and telling to inquire about last days of war etc. Don't you have any sympathy of many others who got killed from the terrorists and our fishermen loosing their livelihood due to your fishermen crossing our boarder every now and then and making problems. I cannot imaging why you learned people have no brain to think these things rather than hearing to the extremists. We thought there only Hitlers, Moussolinis did such things to other nations. But the India whom we thought an Asian country and friendly neighbor have started harassing us in every corner. Let Gods see this discrimination and do pass a justice to us.
