Jagan sits on new sand policy, AP workers lose jobs

Oct 29, 2019 09:30 IST

The delayed rollout of a new sand-mining policy by Jagan Reddy government in Andhra has led to nearly 30 lakh workers in the construction industry losing out on employment over the last 4-5 months. An acute shortage of sand has stalled most building activity in the state. The Indian Express report said that at least 3 suicides have been reported in a month related to the issue. One of the victims, a labourer, recorded a video before hanging himself stating that he was killing himself because he had no means of earning a living.
