THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has stated that there will be no action on the part of the government to adversely affect the fishermen in connection with deep sea fishing. It is not the policy of this government to open up the deep sea to foreign companies for fishing. The government will not give permission for any project deviating from the stand that foreign and local corporates will not be allowed on the Kerala coast in deep sea fishing. This is the assurance of the LDF government and won't go back an inch back from that. The Chief Minister said in a press conference that no one should have the illusion that they can win the elections by spreading rumors.

Pinarayi Vijayan said that the MD of KSINC has not informed the government that any MoU has been signed with the corporation. The CM said that the Leader of the Opposition was highlighting the information in the petition filed by the company and should bring clarity on how he got it. The CM was responding to allegations regarding deep sea fishing.

KSINC is a public sector undertaking. No MoU has been signed by the state government or any government department so far. Usually if the company or public sector undertaking has done so then it will come under the consideration of the government. The CM said that no such MoU has been communicated to the government, the minister, the concerned secretary or the official in charge of the corporation.
