After Agriculture, the next best means of livelihood, is weaving. Almost 80 per cent of the population in Rajanna Sircilla district depend on their looms for livelihood. With the advent of KCR government and KTR representing the constituency, the fate of the weavers have changed drastically. KCR has realised that the weavers were earning just Rs. 8,000 per month max. Many committed suicides, while others left to places like Mumbai for better living conditions. With its revolutionary measures of providing power looms, modernising the existing ones, placing orders for clothes like Bathukamma sarees etc., KTR has brought smiles to the faces of the weavers.
