Their life in Andhra Pradesh’s Guntur district ,bringing the total  to ten people who have reportedly ended their lives over the sand shortage in Andhra Pradesh. But Police blamed it on his liquor addiction and family dispute .

Opposition parties in the state were quick to lash out at Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy and the YSRCP government.

Leader of Opposition Chandrababu Naidu said, “Another day, another construction worker has ended his life. In all 10 people have died in 10 days and the YSRCP government continues to mock the dead.

The opposition parties have blamed the YSRCP government for the sand shortage as immediately after coming to power in May, the Andhra government banned sand mining. In September, it announced a new sand policy to sell sand online. However, it failed to meet the huge demand. The scarcity jacked up the sand prices and affected the construction activity.

The government, however, said floods led to the situation as sand could not be drawn in the required quantities.

Sand can only be mined only if the rivers stop flowing and sand dunes emerge from the river bed. Of the 267 available sand reaches in the state presently mining is possible only in 62 reaches.

Meanwhile, actor-politician and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan has a huge rally in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, in support of construction workers in the state.He also  launched a long March for which tdp chief Chandrababu has joined shoulders .
