The Fishers burn effigy of Kerala finance minister

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Swathanthra Malsyathozhilaly Federation has
registered its protest against the statement of Dr. Thomas Isaac, the
finance minister of Kerala who supported the NABARD proposal for
reclaiming the sea for starting industries. KSMTF urged him to withdraw
the statement as the move would worsen the problems faced by the fishing
community. The reclaimation of the sea will cause serious ecological
problems in the already existing volatile sea and seashore, KSMTF stated.

Hundreds of fisher people gathered in protest against finance minister in
front of the Secretariat. As a symbolic act of the agitation the fishing
community burnt the effigy of the finance minister.
