Fishermen in Puducherry started an indefinite strike on Saturday demanding the release of Karaikal fishermen from Sri Lankan prisons.
The strike was to protest the remand extension of the fishermen from Karaikal and Nagapattinam.
Puducherry are also seeking diesel subsidy, insurance subsidy, and second instalment of cyclone Thane relief funds. Another demand was to increase the depth of the port mouth , as many boats were getting trapped in the sand. – Staff Reporter
