Karnataka Cheif Minister Basavaraj Bommai appealed to Union Minister for External Affairs Jaishankar for the safe evacuation of Kannadiga students stranded in Ukraine.
Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has appealed to Union Minister for External Affairs Jaishankar to bring back Karnataka students safely from war-torn Ukraine.
Speaking to media persons Bommai said, "I have spoken to the Union External Affairs minister in the morning. The Union government is doing everything possible to bring back the stranded Indians safely. Possibilities of taking them to safety back through land route options are being explored as the air services have been hit by the war with Russia. There is information about secure movement possibilities towards the western part of Ukraine and the Indian Embassy in Ukraine is in touch with stranded Indian students."
"We have appealed to ensure the safety of the students and make arrangements for their food and accommodation. Helplines have been set up by both Union and State governments. The Union Minister for External Affairs has appealed to the students to be careful till the war subsides," Bommai said.
