“Katchatheevu is part of India... Entire Tamil Nadu is shocked that UPA government ceded it to Sri Lanka. This is the greatest betrayal to Tamil Nadu,” V Maitreyan of AIADMK said.
Katchatheevu is an island of India where Indian fishermen can rest and dry their nets under an agreement of 1974.
He also referred to Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s submission in the SC about Katchatheevu belonging to India.
DMK’s Kanimozhi said Kachchatheevu was under the king of Ramanathapuram, a point endorsed by BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu. He demanded calling an all party meeting on the issue.
