Delhi students stranded in Kota to arrive on Sunday morning

Delhi students stranded in Kota to arrive on Sunday morning.

New Delhi, (Samajweekly) The buses sent by the Delhi government to bring back around 800 Delhi students stranded in Kota will arrive early morning on Sunday.

Aam Aadmi Party leader, Satya Prakash Dubey said in a tweet: “Buses sent to Kota for bringing back the Delhi Students have left Kota for Delhi. Buses are expected to reach Kashmiri Gate at 5 in the morning. Students will be screened medically, after that DTC buses will drop them at their homes.”

Around 40 buses of the Delhi Transport Coporation had reached Kota on Saturday morning to bring back the students. The buses will follow social distancing measures in their seating arrangements.

The buses will have a team of doctors and officials who will accompany the students.

The move to bring back the students from Kota was announced by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier this week.

In a tweet, Kejriwal said: “Delhi government is making arrangements to soon bring Delhi students back home from Kota.”

Uttar Pradesh and some other states have already brought back their students from Kota in Rajasthan which is a coaching hub for competitive examinations and students from all over the country come there to study and live, especially for the premier engineering institutes.

Kota is famous for its coaching institutes for engineering and medical entrance exams. It is also called “Education City of India”.

Students from across the country went to the town for coaching and stuck there due to lockdown.

To tackle these kind of situations where people are stranded, the Centre has allowed movement of such students, migrant workers, tourists and labourers.
