Telangana State Planning Commission board vice chairman Niranjan Reddy applauded the efforts of the State government.

“Normally, melas are organised for just one day but due to great response from the State, the mela could be organised for two days with such great response. I would personally urge the State and the Central government to replicate this mela in all the cities and mandals of the State so that it reaches all the sections of the society,” informed Reddy.

The mela concluded by picking out lucky draw of 45 winners who will be given special prizes from the State.
