Telugu students of NIT Srinagar returning home

Hyderabad, Aug 4 : About 135 students of National Institute of Technology, Srinagar, belonging to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are returning home with the governments of both the Telugu states making necessary travel arrangements for them.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The students were stuck in Srinagar on Saturday after authorities announced closure of NIT till further orders in view of the security alert in Jammu and Kashmir.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president K. T. Rama Rao tweeted that the Telugu students have reached Jammu and the government was arranging train tickets for them to return to Hyderabad.

The students were asked to return to their native places immediately due to security reasons. The NIT authorities have arranged four buses for them up to Jammu.

According to a statement from Andhra Pradesh government, three buses have been arranged to bring the students to New Delhi from Jammu.

Rama Rao had earlier tweeted that he had been receiving some anxious messages from Telugu students of NIT, Srinagar as the government of India has asked for the campus to be vacated and asked students to leave immediately.

The officials of both the Telugu states in New Delhi were in touch with the students and making arrangements for travel to their native places.
