Gandhi’s interaction with the fishermen assumes significance as the Congress-led UDF has raised allegations against the Left government in the state over an alleged deep sea fishing contract with a US-based company.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday turned seafarer and pulled the net with local fisherman in high sea here to get a taste of their life and understand the issues facing them.

In an emotional talk with thousands of fisherfolk, including women gathered at the Thangassery beach in this southern coastal district, the Nehru scion said he admired and respected what the fishermen do.

“I understand and respect what you do. I admire what you are doing. Many times, we eat the fish but we will not understand the hard work behind and how it reached our plate,” Gandhi said.

Earlier, the Wayanad MP ventured into sea with some fishermen in their boat from Vadi beach here by 4.30 am and spent nearly an hour with them before reaching the venue of interaction.

The Wayanad MP also cast the net with them but could only catch one squid.

Clad in blue t-shirt and khaki trousers, the Congress leader could be seen waving hands to the onlookers from the boat while reaching back to the shores.

Addressing the fishermen as “brothers” throughout his talk, he said he wanted to get a sense of what many of them go through every day.
