Adilabad: MLA Jogu Ramanna thanked his followers, supporters, activists of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and general public for making the mega plantation drive a grand success.
Speaking to the media here on Monday, Ramanna said that the target of planting 10 lakh saplings would not have been achieved, had the supporters, followers and members of TRS and people from all walks of life not participated in the event.
He thanked everyone for supporting the massive plantation drive and helping in creating history. The legislator thanked Rajya Sabha member Joginipally Santosh Kumar for gracing the occasion. He thanked MLAs belonging to erstwhile Adilabad district and public representatives for their presence in the event.
