No funds are reaching weavers of Chirala in Prakasam district. The weavers are well-known for their exquisite gold and silver zari sarees. But they have not lost their glory due to lack of support and middlemen duping them. The master weavers, who had been promised compulsory wages, are ignored by officials. They are staging protests to get these amounts. The weavers urged the government to provide them the material necessary for weaving so that they could earn a livelihood.
