A worker who was in the sit in protest said that “it is because of the money they get from quarrying sand and stones from the river beds they are able to feed themselves and provide education to their children. Now due to this high court order that bans quarrying from river beds, it has affected our lives heavily. There is no work they can do and some families at the stage of starvation.”
The protestors are asking how long they are going to bear this suffering and they appeal the High court to withdraw this decision thinking about the poor workers.
