The AIADMK local unit has urged the territorial government to intensify efforts to trace the three fishermen of Vambakeerapalayam who have been reported missing since July 15.

Party local unit secretary A Anbalagan MLA told newsmen here today that the three fishermen who had put out to sea were yet to return home. The government should take up the matter with all coastal states and trace the fishermen,he said

He blamed the government for being responsible for the tsunami hit families of fishermen in Puducherry and Karaikal regions not being able to get houses for rehabilitation as no clear yardsticks were adopted.

Though the government had promised them houses after the tsunami struck in 2004, nothing had been done so far, he said.
