Telugu Desam Party and the Left parties staged dharna at Gun Park on Thursday, demanding the Government to look into the problems of weavers. With yarn garland around their necks and holding Charka in their hand, they staged protests raising slogans against the Congress Government. Later they moved to the assembly on foot .
Focusing on the deplorable condition of handloom weavers in the state the legislators criticized the Government for failing to keep up its promise in writing off their loans.
Opposition leader Nara Chandrababu Naidu speaking on the occasion said ``we will take up the issue with the Government and will not leave it until justice is meted out to the handloom weavers.’’
