Maha fishermen harass us: state fishermen to Bommai

Home and District In-charge Minister Basavaraj Bommai received grievances from fishermen and members from Scheduled Castes in his newly inaugurated office in Manipal on Friday.

The area is open to all fishermen irrespective of the state they hail from. They alleged that Maharashtra fishermen besides assaulting them also robbed them of their hard-earned money.
