“Sreedhanya fought the social backwardness and passed the civil services exam with flying colours. Her achievement will inspire other students in the future,” Vijayan said in his Facebook post. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan also congratulated other students from the state who cleared the exam.

“I am from the most backward district in the state. There are no tribal IAS officers from here even though there is a considerably large tribal population. I hope this will be an inspiration and motivation to the future generations to overcome all hurdles,” Sreedhanya told media.
