Allow students from Ukraine to continue studies here: CM to PM

Chief Minister M K Stalin has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to find a way out to enable Indian medical students who studied in Ukraine to continue their studies within the country. In a letter to Modi, a copy of which was released to the media here, Stalin said since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, over 1,200 medical students have so far returned to Tamilnadu and the remaining are also expected to return in the coming days.

‘The current situation has already resulted in the disruption of their studies and also threatens their future careers’, he said. ‘Given the current unprecedented situation in Ukraine, it may not be practically possible for these medical students to return to their colleges in Ukraine, to continue their studies. The uncertainty is likely to prevail even after the cessation of hostilities and till the restoration of normalcy in their universities,’ Stalin pointed out.
