Now students are returning from Ukraine to their home and worried about their further studies. Even his parents, who have spent their hard earned money on his education, are worried,” Singh Deo said.
“I personally feel that if these students are absorbed in the medical colleges in the country through a prescribed procedure, they will happily accept it,” the letter said.
