Anna Francis, a student who met the District Collector, M.Padma Kumar, said she was happy to have been a part of the team. “When I asked the official what he would do if the district is hit by a disaster, he said the district had a well equipped disaster management wing which would rise to the occasion”. “I would like to thank everyone who contributed towards rebuilding the lives of Kashmir’s flood victims. I feel privileged to be part of the event”, said Anjaykrishna, other student.
