The Praja Rajya Party president, K Chiranjeevi on his one day visit to the city extended his support to the members of Joint Action Committee of Chittivalasa Jute Mill. The members of the JAC have been sitting on hunger strike in front of the jute mill in Bheemili demanding reopening of the mill that was locked up on April 20, 2009. Speaking on the occasion, Chiranjeevi said that the party will try to solve the problem in the stipulated period of ten days by putting pressure on both the management and on the government.

The five members of the JAC including Ch Dharma Reddy and S Eswara Rao of Congress workers Association, K Yesudasu and Narasinga Rao of INTUC, R Narasinga Rao of CITU are on hunger strike. Nearly 5,200 workers of the mill have been rendered jobless since the day the mill was closed down. Though the State Government order to lift the lock out, the management did not reopen after it got a stay order from the Court in August 2009, said S Gangadhara Reddy of Congress Workers Association.
