Parvathipuram (Vizianagaram): The construction workers demanded the government to resolve the sand mining issue as it has badly affected the sector and hundreds of workers were losing their jobs.

The workers on Thursday staged Bhikshatana as part of protest demonstration in Parvathipuram town of Vizianagaram. They alleged that government has stopped the mining of sand from river basins and as a result, the entire construction works came to a halt and thousands of workers became jobless.

"Our families are sleeping with empty stomachs. Ours is not a regular job and we have no savings to survive during these days. We have been struggling to meet ends. But suddenly the government has stopped the sand supply.

How can we feed our families? We don't know any other work other than construction. The government either should feed our families or lift the ban of sand mining," they said. CITU leaders P Sanyasi and GV Ramana participated in the protest.
