Hyderabad: Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav will convene a meeting with representatives of Gangaputra and Mudiraj communities in Hyderabad on July 8 to discuss and solve pending issues. Besides providing membership to youngsters from the fishermen community aged above 18 in the fishermen co-operative societies, the meeting will also discuss proposals for the welfare of the community in the State.
In a review meeting held at his chambers in Masab Tank here on Tuesday, the Fisheries Minister said in view of the formation of new districts and new gram panchayats, necessary steps would be taken to set up new fisheries co-operative societies. He stated that funds to be paid under the insurance scheme at the rate of Rs 2 lakh each to the families of the 116 fishermen who died would be released soon. “The livelihood of the fishermen has greatly improved with the availability of water resources on a large scale across the State and also with the government distributing fish seedlings free of cost,” he said.
