Ukraine-return medical students begin hunger strike as NMS rejects accommodation in Indian institutions
The Centre informed Lok Sabha that the National Medical Commission (NMC) has denied permission to transfer or accommodate any foreign medical students in any Indian medical institute or university
Russia executed a ‘special military operation’ on their neighbouring country Ukraine on 24 February. The fallout of this war was suffered in various sectors including a large chunk of Indian students who had to be evacuated via Operation Ganga after their colleges closed down. They had earlier been promised seats and accommodation in Indian universities. However, they still await their seats.
