Accordingly a leader of fishermen, who have won widespread praise by rescuing hundreds caught up in the Kerala floods, on Monday refused to accept Rs 3,000 offered to each member of the community by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Meanwhile Khais Mohammed from Fort Kochi said in a video post that he and his colleagues were happy to hear the words of praise from the Chief Minister for the role they played in going to the remotest areas amid pouring rain and dangerous waters to rescue the marooned.
Mohammed said “We are really happy that he and his friends rescued several people and further what made them happier was when you said that fishermen are your army," but after that, we heard that for our services we will be paid Rs 3,000. Sir, that made us really sad as we do not want money for saving the lives of fellow humans”. Moreover he, however, added that all the fishermen were happy that the government had promised to repair their damaged boats free of cost.
He added "That's good news, but we do not want
money for saving lives". Further Fishermen from major fishing centres
reached the worst hit Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha, Ernakulam and Thrissur
districts with their boats after unprecedented rains and the opening of sluice
gates of dams spread misery.
