Kakkanad: Ernakulam district collector K. Mohammed Y. Safirulla was given a different farewell party by his colleagues at the collectorate on Wednesday. Almost all of the employees at the collectorate were dressed in blue to bid farewell to the collector who always wears blue shirts on all occasions, be it official or personal.
The male staff including ADM K. Chandrasekharan Nair wore blue shirt while lady staff were clad in blue sarees and salwar. The collector who is leaving office on Thursday was given a farewell on Wednesday by the Collectorate Staff Council.
Collector Mohammed Y. Safirulla had clarified the other day that he prefers blue colour because he had to wear blue uniform for many years during the school-college days and during his career as an engineer.
The farewell meeting organised by the Collectorate Staff Council was chaired by ADM K. Chandrasekharan Nair. Staff council president E. A. Sheeba, secretary Sarath Gopi and deputy collectors attended the meeting.
