Pema Khandu, the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, said on Thursday that six students from the state have arrived in New Delhi as part of an evacuation mission from war-torn Ukraine. Officials from the state government met them at the airport in the nation's capital.
"Six Arunachali students who had been stranded in Ukraine have recently arrived in New Delhi. Officials from the State Government greeted them warmly at the airport "On Twitter, Khandu stated. Those who returned to India are studying at universities across the east European country. High official stated that the students will stay at Arunachal Bhawan in the national capital till they return to their homes, and plans are being made to transport them back to the state.
According to Khandu, the Centre is working relentlessly to remove Indians from Ukraine, and the Resident Commissioner's office in Delhi has been reaching out to students trapped in the war-torn nation. According to the official, the State Government is working with the Ministry of External Affairs to arrange for the evacuation of the stranded students from Ukraine.
The government has also provided WhatsApp numbers and email accounts, as well as a web page, for people still left in the war-torn nation to reach the authorities. "At least four more Arunachal Pradesh teenagers are still in Ukraine," stated the officer. Because the Ukrainian airspace has been closed since February 24 owing to the Russian military operation, India has begun evacuating its nationals through special aircraft from Ukraine's western neighbours such as Romania, Hungary, and Poland.
On Thursday, the IAF and Indian carriers would transport 3,726 people from Ukraine's neighbouring nations back to India, according to Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.
