At the Collector’s camp office, officials and women politicians greeted Collector D. Divya and smeared colours on her. The SP’s camp office saw vigorous celebrations which had the police officials and others dancing to popular numbers.

Celebrations were of the same tempo at Kumram Bheem Asifabad, Mancherial and Nirmal districts.
