VIJAYAWADA: Contributions of women during the freedom struggle are everlasting and the present generation should draw inspiration from them for further development of the country, said NTR district collector S Dilli Rao. The collector participated in a rally organised by Vasavya Mahila Mandali as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, here on Sunday.
