The Fishers burn effigy of Kerala finance minister

April 30, 2008:
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 infront of the Secretariat. As a symbolic act of the agitation the fishing community burnt the effigy of the finance minister.
