Bhubaneswar: Even as the Odisha Government is putting all its efforts to wipe out the novel coronavirus, many people from the state stranded in different parts of the country are still waiting for the state Government’s assistance to return to their houses.
Recently, a group of girl students from Odisha stranded in Rajasthan’s Kota area requested Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik through a velfie to make necessary arrangements for their return.
As per information, 10 girls from Jharsuguda, Sambalpur and Sundergarh districts are pursuing their medical courses in Kota. The girls stated that there are many other students from Odisha, who are there for engineering or medical courses and are now stuck in there.
With situations getting tougher with each passing day, the students stated to be running out of their resources. They are even cutting down on their daily meals. Recently, the Uttar Pradesh Government had sent 250 buses to Kota to rescue around 6000 of its students. Seeing that, few Odisha girls through a velfie, urged Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to make arrangements for their return to the state.
“We are all stressed and panicking here as the number of COVID-19 positive cases is rising here. Our families back home are worried too. We are not being able to focus on our studies under such circumstances and it’s getting difficult for us to survive here. So, we request our CM Naveen Patnaik to kindly make necessary arrangements so that we could all return home,” one of the stranded students said.
