Meantime fishermen families are still continuing their protest in Kanyakumari demanding to find their loved ones soon. Still more than 1000 fishermen are missing who left shore before the Ockhi cyclone. They are demanding the government to make rescue operation most responsive and wanted Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy to meet them.
