Call to trace missing fishermen
Cadre of Tamil Puligal staged a protest standing in seawaters here on Wednesday demanding the Central and State governments to intensify search operations and trace the missing fishermen, who were caught in cyclone Ockhi while fishing at high seas, at the earliest.
Holding party flags, the cadre raised slogans demanding the government agencies to fulfil their demand.
Several fishermen became victims of the cyclone Ockhi that struck Kanyakumari on November 30.
S. Doss, district secretary of the party, who led the protest, said families of missing fishermen in Kanyakumari were in grief and hoping for their safe return home.
