Help is always at hand for non-resident Indians

Filed on February 3, 2020 | Last updated on February 3, 2020 at 07.30 pm

The government of India deserves praise for its alacrity in reaching out to non-resident Indians in distress. Whether it was during the Gulf-war in 1990, stranded Indians in Yemen in 2015, or evacuation of Indian students from Wuhan province in China this year, the Indian government has always reached out to help.

This is the perfect example of how much government of India cares for its countrymen in distress, and uses all resources on its command to help them.

In all these rescue operations undertaken by the government of India, state-owned carrier Air India has always played a formidable role and it should be applauded for its services. Even now, it is Air India that flew to China to bring back Indian students from Wuhan, which is the epicentre of coronavirus.

Modi government has followed the glorious record of all the past Indian governments in reaching out to Indians in-distress abroad. Gulf war was biggest ever evacuation undertaken by India. Thousands of Indians stranded in Iraq during Iraq and Iran war were evacuated from the conflict zone.
