The Governor spent half-an-hour with the family of Sreedhanya Suresh and appreciated both Sreedhanya and her family for the achievement. He also directed the District Collector to initiate steps to support the family which is struggling against all odds. Expressing her gratitude towards the felicitation meet, Sreedhanya said she will be taking all advice given by the governor into account and will work for the people of the country. Sreedhanya is second among the three children of the family of Ambalakolli tribal colony in Puzhuthana. Her elder sister Sushitha is an attendant at a civil court in Palakkad while brother Sreerag is studying at Government Poly Technic college, Meenagadi in Wayanad.
