About 400 students have flown back to India from Slovakia, says Indian envoy

Kosice [Slovakia], March 4: India’s Ambassador to Slovakia, Vanlalhuma, informed on Friday that around 400 Indian students have already flown back to India.

In an exclusive interview with ANI in Kosice, he said, “About 400 have already gone back on two flights. Then we have two more flights to go today and one more flight tomorrow.”

Giving further details, the ambassador said that one SpiceJet flight left for India with 188 students today morning, and an Indian Air Force aircraft will be leaving in the afternoon with about 210 students.

Speaking about the challenges that Operation Ganga faces, he said that logistics, accommodation for the students, transportation are the main bottlenecks on the Slovakian side, but it is mainly about crossing the border for the Indians.

“But we have been able to meet these challenges as best as we can. It may not be the most comfortable stay or experience for them, but given the situation, I think, we are doing quite good,” he said.

“In the next two-three days, every Indian student will leave Slovakia. Even now, more students are trickling in, we will have to ensure that everybody goes back to India safely,” he added.

Meanwhile, three more Indian Air Force’s C-17 aircraft returned to the Hindan airbase late last night and early morning today carrying 630 Indian nationals from Ukraine, using airfields in Romania and Hungary under Operation Ganga. (ANI)
