“The country is going through a tough time. I expect I can contribute effectively. I am very happy to come in the first ten ranks. I never expected it,” the 27-year-old added.

Ms. Meera completed her higher secondary education from Kulapathi Munshi Bhavans Vidyamandir, Pottore.

Her father, K. Ramdas, runs a construction company while her mother, K. Radhika, is a teacher at NSS High School, Mundathikkode.

Revenue Minister K. Rajan, Thrissur Collector Haritha V. Kumar and Xavier Chittilappilly, MLA, met Meera at her house.

“The entire State is proud of Ms. Meera. It gives additional joy that she got selected in the Kerala cadre itself,” the Minister said.
