J&K Govt seeks early return of remaining students from Bangladesh


JAMMU, MAY 9: Jammu and Kashmir Government has sought early return of all the students of the UT studying in neigbouring country of Bangladesh under ‘Vande Bharat Mission’ launched by the government of India to facilitate the return of the Indian Citizens stranded abroad amid Covid- 19 pandemic .
The first batch of 168 students of J&K studying in Bangladesh has been airlifted to Srinagar International Airport on May 8, 2020.

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.


As per the figures with the Government of Jammu and Kashmir, 230-240 students are still stranded in Bangladesh.
In this regard, Chief Secretary J&K, B V R Subrahmanyam has written to Foreign Secretary, Government of India, Mr Harsh Vardhan Shringla.


“Their early return attains significance in view of the ongoing holy month of Ramadhan and the approaching Eid festival falling on May 25, 2020,” the CS has written to the Foreign Secretary.


The CS has pointed out that with the present plan of evacuating these students in a staggered manner, there is every apprehension that such students, who have to take flights at later dates would get anxious.


Seeking the personal intervention of the Foreign Secretary, the SC has called for arranging return of these students to Srinagar International Airport in a single flight by arranging their airlift in an aircraft with a capacity of 250 persons so that they reach Jammu and Kashmir well before the Eid festival.


“This needs to be mitigated, keeping in consideration the extreme distress prevalent in the stranded students/persons due to the COVID-19 pandemic” the CS has appealed in his letter to the Foreign Secretary.
