The festivities were held at the offices of the district collectors and at the residences of ministers, legislators and TRS leaders. School and college girls participated in the celebrations.

    At Telangana Bhavan in New Delhi, central minister Smirit Irani took part in the celebrations. Central minister Bandaru Dattatreya and Telangana’s special representative in Delhi, Venugopala Chary, were present.
