"I am currently in my constituency. I have planned to come to Parliament on Monday morning and so I will not be able to attend the meeting scheduled at 9.45 am. It is difficult for many members like me to participate in the meeting and so I request you to postpone the meeting to 9.45 am on Tuesday", said Ravikumar, in the letter which was sent through e-mail.
Following the severe opposition for the draft Marine Fisheries Bill from fishemen community across the nation, central government before tabling the Bill has decided to hold a meeting with MPs.
