Addressing a press conference at the state secretariat in Nabanna, Banerjee said that it is not possible for these students to spend a huge amount again for their education in another foreign country.

“Two months on, the Central government has not yet taken any responsibility for the students who have returned from Ukraine. They have just asked the students to go to Poland and Hungary for their studies. But we have chalked out an idea as it is not possible for the students to spend a huge amount again for their education in another foreign country. The Chief Secretary, education secretary, medical health secretary have all been part of the plan,” she said.

As many as 422 people were brought back to West Bengal from Ukraine. Out of which, 412 are medical students– 409 MBBS students and three Dental students. Six are engineering candidates and one Veterinary student.

After the students returned on 16 March, their CVs and other details were shared with concerned departments for admissions.
