"Our fishermen have been facing a great challenge from Sri Lanka. Many of our colleagues have been arrested and they are yet to see the light of day," a fisherman from Tamil Nadu asked Rahul Gandhi at the fishermen's parliament.

"For India the most important thing is to give voice for the people. In today's government Ambani and Nirav Modi has a lot of voice and they can send the message in 10 secs. They can even whisper. But the farmers small businesses men, fishermen have to make a lot of noise to reach the PM," Rahul Gandhi replied to the fisherman.

"For example when the cyclone come the fishermen who goes and save people. But it's not your job but navy and coastguard's. But when the nation needs you, you are there, but the sad part is when you need India, India is not with you. The impact is borne by you," said Rahul Gandhi.

"You are facing issue with Sri Lanka. Trawlers and new sea rules. I want to give you a big solution. I want to give your own amplifier. So that you need something your voice is heard in Delhi. The solution is your own ministry in Delhi. Somebody has to represent you in Delhi. My commitment to you is that the moment we win in Delhi you will have your own ministry," said Rahul Gandhi.
