Asked why the church was speaking on behalf of the UDF, Mersikuttyamma pointed out that no other bishop in the history of Kollam district had ever made such a blind intervention. The Minister said that many of the believers were calling for this intercession and even interpreted the Fisheries Act as baseless and therefore hoped that the Church would reconsider the action now taken.

In addition, attempts are being made to destroy traditional fishing grounds in the name of development and tourism. The church said in a statement that the decision was taken “against any government”.
