HYDERABAD: Thousands of people thronged Sunday Funday events organised by HMDA and GHMC at Tank Bund and Charminar on Sunday evening. The event was a part of the ongoing ‘Swatantra Bharat Vajrotsavalu’ celebrations marking the 75 Independence Day.
Light showers and drizzle throughout the day and late evening did not dampen the spirits of people as both the venues witnessed large crowds amid zest and enthusiasm.
Special chief secretary of MA&UD Arvind Kumar said “We have arranged fireworks at both Tank Bund and Charminar to celebrate the spirit of Independence”.
Food stalls, shopping stalls and fireworks were organized at both the venues.
