Accommodate Ukraine-returned students in Indian colleges: KCR to PM Modi

Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accommodate Ukraine-returned medical students in Indian colleges.

In the letter, he said that war and the resultant dislocation of the students have jeopardized their future. He said they have devoted considerable time and spent large sums of money in pursuing medical education in Ukraine.

"Considering the exceptional circumstances of these students, I would request that as a special case, to help them complete their education, they may be enabled to join medical colleges in the country in equivalent semesters in relaxation of the regulations in vogue. For this purpose, permission may also be accorded to proportionately increase the seats in different semesters in the medical colleges on a one-time basis to accommodate these students," he wrote.




KCR also highlighted that most of these students are from middle-class families who will lose their savings without any hope of completing the medical education of their children.

KCR informed that there are around 700 students from Telangana who returned from Ukraine without completing their medical education. "Telangana government has decided to bear their medical education expenses," he said.

On March 15, KCR had announced that all the 740 students from Telangana who returned from Ukraine will be supported financially to complete their medical education in the state.
