Meanwhile, the Chief Minister has greeted people on the eve of Saddula Bathukamma, the last day of the Poola Bathukamma.

He expressed happiness over the way women in Telangana have celebrated the nine-day festival with floral tributes to Bathukamma, and the way they worshipped Mother Nature amidst happiness and celebrated the state festival with all the gaiety.

He urged people to take inspiration from Bathukamma and protect and preserve Mother Nature, environment and the water resources.

The floral festival of Telangana, which began on October 6, will end on October 14.

Women sing and dance around specially arranged flowers during the folk festival. Ever since the formation of Telangana in 2014, Bathukamma is being celebrated as the state festival.
