Srinagar

While expressing concern over the plight of J&K students stranded in different parts of the country, CPI (M) leader MY Tarigami Friday urged the administration to make special arrangements to evacuate them.

In a statement, Tarigami said that a large number of students from Jammu and Kashmir studying in various educational institutions are stranded in different parts of the country i.e  Hyderabad, Chennai, Gujrat, Jaipur, Kerala and other states and outside India due to COVID19 lockdown for the last almost two months.

He said that they are living under constant fear and distress with their families worried about their health and well-being.

“They are seeking help as they are unable to return back home due to the travel restrictions imposed by the government to contain the spread of the coronavirus,” said Tarigami.

“They want to return back to their homes and are persistently appealing the government to evacuate them. A large number of stranded students are facing financial distress after their education institutions were shut down,” he said.

According to the statement, in this connection, he wrote a letter to Lt Governor urging him to ensure that the administration makes special arrangements to bring them back to their homes at the earliest.
