On the issue of his efforts to provide fulltime employment to 10,000 fisherfolk who depended on anchorage port and on the reports of deep water port affecting their livelihood, the TD leader said that first he would find out the reasons for downward trend in export and imports from Kakinada in the last couple of years and then find a solution to the issues involved in port activities.
Sunil made it clear that once elected, he would make available himself to locals in the constituency to cater to their needs at his local office in Kakinada.
