(CHENNAI, LANKAPUVATH) – Lashing out at the political parties demanding the retrieval of Katchatheevu from Sri Lanka, Union Minister of State for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, Pon Radhakrishnan, asserted that retrieving the islet will not solve the Indian fishermen issue. Those parties that put forth such a demand were only imagining things and showed that they lacked understanding on the subject, he charged, the Deccan Chronicle reported."“Katchatheevu retrieval is of no use” – Pon Radhakrishnan"
