MLA candidates, who are leaving no stone unturned to attract voters, made an effort to appease voters of a community by celebrating Diwali along with them in a graveyard in Karimnagar town.

In a unique practice, people from dalit communities celebrate Diwali festival at the Karkanagadda cemetery. Besides bursting crackers, people pay tributes to their departed family members by offering different types of dishes, which they used to like when they were alive.
