In Andhra Pradesh, sand difficulties are gradually decreasing. Since the formation of the YCP government, the availability of sand in the state has been reduced. Some of the unemployed workers also committed suicide. The TDP, BJP and Jana Sena are criticizing the government. But YCP leaders are countering the fact that the floods in the rivers are not supplying sand due to floods caused by incessant rains.
However, the availability of sand is gradually increasing in the state. The AP Mineral Development Agency (APMDC) is slowly increasing its supply of sand. The sand policy in the state came into effect on September 5. At that time massive floods continued in the rivers Godavari, Krishna, Tungabhadra, Penna, Vamsadhara and Nagavali. This made it impossible to drill sand in the Reichs.
Officials have accelerated sand mining as the latest rainy season comes to an end and floods have subsided. The state excavated 85,122 tonnes of sand on Thursday while on Friday 86482 tonnes of sand excavated. Officials say the old reserves are combined and supply 96,000 tonnes of sand a day. Workers are happy over the increasing employment of sand.
