Vijayawada: CITU Krishna district secretary M Mahesh on Thursday demanded that the government ensure that all the sand quarries in the district be open and allow supply of sand with immediate effect. He demanded that the government permit them to avail the sand from sand reaches located at Ferry, Guntupalli and Surayapalem. The members of building construction workers staged a protest and demanded for release of sand for their livelihood as the workers are already in serious financial problems as the construction works came to a halt. Mahesh asked Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy how the construction workers will live without work till the government adopts the new sand policy in September. He further demanded that the government immediately make alternative arrangements for supply of sand to provide livelihood to the construction workers.
