The happiness on the faces of the elderly departing for the pilgrimage by bus was truly heartwarming. They expressed gratitude, attributing their opportunity solely to the current state government of the state. They hailed this initiative as a commendable step, emphasizing that no amount of praise would suffice for the government's efforts.
