AP handloom sector in deep crisis: Lokesh
Narsapur (West Godavari): The handloom sector in the State is in deep crisis due to the inefficient administration of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, said TDP national general secretary Nara Lokesh here on Thursday. The handloom workers in a memorandum to Lokesh raised various issues including non-availability of insurance scheme, no scholarships for their children and no free power. Responding to their problems, Lokesh said that at least 60 handloom workers committed suicide after Jagan came to power. Leave alone paying any ex gratia to their families, the Chief Minister did not bother even to console the bereaved family members, he said.
