New Delhi, March 6 (Delhi Crown): Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has urged the Union Government to enable and facilitate continuance of medical studies of the students who have returned from Ukraine amid Russia war.
He said that careers of several thousands of young students were at stake, and that the federal government must intervene in the current situation.
“This is an unprecedented crisis that has the potential of disrupting the careers of several thousands of young men and women who have already gone through the trauma of being in the war zone,” wrote the Chief Minister in a letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He added – “I would request for your urgent intervention with the National Medical Commission (NMC) and the ministries concerned to enable and facilitate continuance of their studies in the medical colleges in India from the stage from which their studies in Ukraine have been disrupted on account of the war.”
Patnaik further stated that the disruption in their studies is likely to continue until cessation of the hostilities and restoration of normalcy in their universities in Ukraine.
The Indian Government has undertaken “Operation Ganga” to bring back Indians, mostly medical students, stuck in Ukraine. So far over 15,000 Indians have been evacuated with the help of special flights from countries adjoining Ukraine.
