The doctors’ body urged PM Modi to help them financially and create a dedicated helpdesk for medical students. As you know thousands of Indian students pursuing medical studies are stranded in Ukraine. Most of them cannot afford the increased cost of air travel.
Even the bearers cannot travel due to the unfavorable conditions there. Even the day-to-day rations are getting reduced, creating serious difficulties for their survival, the Indian Medical Association said in a letter to PM Modi.

We sincerely and humbly appeal to your good self to give priority to our young students and bring them back at the earliest.
We request the government to further help them financially and do everything possible to get them out.
