The meeting, they said, should arrive at a permanent and comprehensive solution to attacks on Indian fishermen by the Lankan navy.

In a memorandum to the prime minister, the DMK MPs said a meeting of the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) was held on February 2 here chaired by DMK president and TESO founder M Karunanidhi.  In one of the resolutions, TESO sought immediate intervention of the Indian government in resolving the problems faced by  fishermen from Tamil Nadu.
