A power loom weaver committed suicide by hanging himself to a ceiling fan at his rented house in Sircilla. It is alleged that he took the extreme step owing to power cut situation to the power looms as they failed to get their work done.

One Ch. Lakshmi Narasaiah (55) was unable to secure work on power looms for the last three days as the power supply was stopped. He was deeply upset as he had to clear Rs.2 lakhs he had raised six months ago to perform his daughter's marriage.

Dharna staged

The power loom weavers and leaders of various political parties staged a massive dharna in Sircilla alleging that the erratic power supply was indirectly responsible for the suicide.
