Until now, nearly 3,000 stranded Indians have arrived in India. "Narendra Modi hai toh mumkin hai. I love you Indian government," one of the evacuees said.
On Tuesday night, 328 more Indians arrived at New Delhi International Airport under ‘Operation Kaveri’ from strife-torn Sudan. Until now, nearly 3,000 stranded Indians have arrived in India.
“328 more passengers have landed in New Delhi. #OperationKaveri moving steadily forward as around 3000 have reached India now,” External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar tweeted. Committed to ensuring that no Indian national is left behind in Sudan, India started Operation Kaveri on April 24 and deployed its military planes and warships in the war-torn country.
“Narendra Modi hai toh mumkin hai. I love you Indian government,” one of the evacuees said.
Meanwhile, another evacuee said that the Indian embassy of Sudan, Riyadh and the General Counsel from Jeddah have all coordinated to bring them back.
“I am very happy coming back to India. The situation in Sudan is very critical. Bombing and firing are going on in the entire country. I am thankful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for evacuating us under Operation Kaveri,” another evacuee said.
“Excellent effort was done by the Indian government. It is the government that cares for the people, and responds to the people in their time of need,” Captain Sunil Chaddha said.
Meanwhile, the 20th batch of stranded Indians has departed from Sudan for Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah. “20th batch of evacuees departs from Port Sudan. IAF C-130J flight with 116 passengers is en route to Jeddah,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said in a tweet.
