Weavers in Andhra Pradesh are on warfront demanding the government to come to their rescue.
They are organizing ‘Cheneta Satyagraham’ at Mangalagiri today in which Jana Sena chief and actor Pawan Kalyan will participate. They are demanding due recognition politically to Padmasali caste people and to come to the rescue of the Cheneta industry. The Satyagraham will be held at open grounds opposite to Acharya Nagarjuna University.
Sources said that the deeksha commences at 11am and ends at 4pm and Pawan Kalyan will too participate in the deeksha. They represent 13 per cent in the State population but were denied due recognition politically. They wanted Pawan to question the same to the government, said sources. The main demands included to arrest hunger deaths, strengthening of Weavers Cooperative Societies, subsidy on thread and chemicals.
