Telangana Governor, Union Minister Offer Prayers at Medaram Jathara

Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan and Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda joined thousands of devotees at the ongoing Medaram Jathara, a mega tribal festival in Telangana, on Friday.

Arjun Munda, speaking after offering prayers, called the Jathara, celebrated in the forest areas of Medaram bordering Chhattisgarh, “the biggest festival of Adivasis.” This biannual event draws large crowds from across the country, particularly Adivasi communities.

“I am happy to be here for the second time,” Munda said, greeting devotees and choosing Hindi to reach a wider Adivasi audience. He expressed his delight at attending the festival alongside the Governor.

Soundararajan, expressing her “good fortune” at visiting the festival for the third time, highlighted her commitment to tribal communities. “I have adopted six villages in the tribal areas of the state,” she stated.

The four-day Medaram Jathara, also known as Sammakka Saralamma Jathara, began on Wednesday and features vibrant cultural performances, traditional rituals, and offerings to the deities Sammakka and Saralamma. Telangana ministers D Sridhar Babu and Danasari Anasuya, along with several officials, were also present during the dignitaries’ visit.
