Tamil Nadu CM writes to Indian Prime Minister again on Sri Lanka


Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa has written to the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi again to take immediate action through highest diplomatic levels to secure the release of all the Tamil Nadu fishermen arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy for poaching in the island's territorial waters.

She wrote that the constitutionality of the 1974 and 1976 agreements that ceded the Katchatheevu Island to Sri Lanka and set up the IMBL have been challenged on "extremely valid and legal grounds" by the Chief Minister in her personal capacity and also by the Tamil Nadu Government in the Supreme Court of India.
