For 700 medical students returning from Ukraine, KCR has some exciting news

medical students returning from Ukraine

Telangana students who went to Ukraine to study medicine would now have their courses paid for by the state government, according to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, following a heated debate about why Indian students go abroad to study medicine. Mr Rao made the announcement today in the state parliament, saying that 740 students from the state were studying medicine in Ukraine and have now returned. In his speech, Mr Rao stated, “We will write to the Centre to say we will assist them.”

Over 18,000 Indians were recently deported from Ukraine by the central authorities. The majority of them were students who had gone to the former Soviet republic to study medicine, which is cheaper there.

The Russian incursion in February stunned the students, who were left trapped without adequate food, drink, or, in some cases, shelter. Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagowdar, a student from nearby Karnataka, was killed in Kharkiv by Russian bombardment.

A controversy erupted at home about whether students need to travel overseas.

While some believe that only students who fail to pass India’s medical entrance exams move abroad, others maintain that India lacks sufficient medical seats to accommodate all worthy candidates.

After Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said that students study abroad “after failing to qualify” in competitive exams in India, the debate heated up.

The heartbroken father of Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagowdar reacted angrily, drawing attention to the enormous cost of learning medicine in India. He claimed that his son was a bright student who had to study medicine in Ukraine since he couldn’t afford to do so in India.

“For individuals interested in studying medicine here, the donation is rather high. Intelligent kids will study abroad, and they will spend less money than students in Karnataka. To acquire a medical seat under quota, a student will have to pay in crores “he stated
