With tribal goddesses Sammakka and Saralamma brought to the pedestal in Medaram, heavy rush of devotees was witnessed in the Jatara in Telangana. People had to wait for long hours to have darshan of the goddesses.

There was hardly any room left on Jampanna Vagu for walking. Due to heavy rush, hot weather and dust, many people, especially elderly persons, women and children became dehydrated and were treated at health centres which were set up near the temple.

About three women complained of uneasiness and were taken on stretchers to nearest health centre for treatment. As the day passed the crowd started swelling and the duration of darshan also increased. The line of darshan reached over one kilometer and people were forced to stand under the hot sun without food and water.
