The requests extended by president K. Nakeswaran included the opening of ‘Chinappaalam’ to help the resettled fishermen and the construction of proper drainage facilities in Kaddaippa’richchaan.

The Tamil fishermen who depend on fishing for their living should also be permitted to fish in Vaddam sea area along with the Muslim fishermen who are allowed to fish there, Nakeswaran requested in the meeting.
