Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) Dr BD Mishra on Wednesday expressed his happiness that all Arunachali students, who were stranded in Ukraine, have come out of the war-ravaged country.
He also expressed his gratitude to the Central Government and the officials of the various embassies and ministries for facilitating the safe return of the Arunachali students. However, sources said that all but one Arunachali student reached India under the ongoing ‘Operation Ganga’ amid the escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
The 23-year-old male student has safely come out of the war-torn Ukraine and is presently in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, waiting to be evacuated. Atleast 12 Arunachali students were studying in Ivano-Frankivsk, Sumy, Zakarpattya, Ternopil and Kharkiv region of Ukraine, the sources said.
The Arunachal Governor, who has been closely monitoring the evacuation process since the Russian offensive began in Ukraine last month, thanked the Central Government and officials of its various embassies and ministries for the safe return of the Arunachali students, who have reached India.
He also commended the parents and relatives of the students for their optimism and trust on the Government, a communiqué from the Raj Bhavan said.
“One more Arunachali student has to return back home. He is now safely out of the Ukraine warzone. He is presently in Budapest, Hungary,” the communiqué said.
The Governor, meanwhile, prayed for safe return of all the Indian students from the war-ravaged country.
