CHIRALA: Handloom weavers staged protest demanding implementation of Aatma Nirbhar Bharath Abhiyan package for the weavers here on Thursday.
Large number of weavers took part in the protest by maintaining social distance. The protestors sported placards demanding the Centre and state governments to announce immediate relief scheme for the weavers hit by the covid-19 pandemic.

Addressing the gathering, Rashtra Chenetha Jana Samakhya (RCJS) state president and convenor of national network of handloom Macharla Mohan Rao said that handloom sector has been providing the employment for several lakhs of people in rural areas next only to the agriculture sector. He said that more than four lakh people were depended on the handlooms in the state with nearly 1.3 lakh households.
He said that the weaving activity came to a grinding halt due to the covid-19 leaving majority of the weavers suffering with hunger. “Weavers are worst hit because of corona as they are not getting work from the master weavers and cooperative societies,” said Mohan Rao. He said that the weavers required quality of yarn and silk for continuing the normal pace of enterprise, which is not available in the market due to shutdown of spinning mills and silk reeling units.

Another leader DV Nageswara Rao said that majority of the weaver’s earnings were below Rs.5000 per month even before the covid-19 outbreak. He demanded that the government should take the situation with a serious note and initiate immediate steps to re start handloom weaving on the looms for their regular livelihood. He demanded that government should extend assistance to provide subsided yarn materials under Aatma Nirbhar Bharath Package. He had also demanded that the government should provide Rs 3,000/- per month for 6 months period.
Dasarathi demanded that government should take immediate steps to establish production and procurement centres in handlooms Clusters with Rs 300 crores as seed capital. He said that the government should procure accumulated stock immediately from the cooperative societies and master weavers.
