According to YSRCP legislator Y Saiprasad Reddy, Nirmala, who was adamant about pursuing her educational goals in life, approached him during the latter's "Gadapa Gadapaku Mana Prabhutvam" programme last year with a plea to help her in pursuing her goals in life.

The Adoni MLA who was moved by the girl's plight, informed about the situation to the district collector G Srujana, who in turn intervened and first rescued Nirmala from an imminent child marriage.

The district administration later on got her admitted to Kasturba Gandhi Balikala Vidyalaya at Aspari and then on there was no looking back for Nirmala, who braved against all odds to reach the toppers list in this year's intermediate examinations. (ANI)
