Hyderabad: With just one more day left for the World Telugu Conference to begin, the city is sporting a festive look.

Last minute preparations for the mega conference that will showcase Telangana’s literature and language are on.

The city, which has been decked up with around 100 hoardings and several arches near flyovers, main roads and the entry points to the city, is ready to give a warm reception to nearly 8,000 delegates and others participating in the conference.

At the same time, undeterred by the winter chill, workers are sweating it out at the Lal Bahadur Stadium to make sure everything is ready on time. The entire venue is ready to sport a swanky look with multicolour lights, balloons, chairs and the representation of Telangana pride on one platform.

As part of beautification works, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is also busy giving final touches to the city and particularly, around the LB Stadium, the main venue for the programme. Major junctions, parks, roads, buildings and across the city have been illuminated, with trees in and around the main venue and Ravindra Bharathi, dazzling with colourful lights.

Nandini Sidda Reddy, Chairman, Telangana Sahitya Academy said 90 per cent of the works were completed and that arrangements were going on round the clock in LB Stadium. “Everything will be ready by December 15,” he said.
