Following a long debate about why Indian students go overseas to study medicine, educators from Telangana who went to Ukraine for their medical studies will now have their education supported and sponsored by the state government of Telangana.
Chief Minister Mr. Rao said in the state parliament that 740 students from Telangana state were studying medicine in Ukraine and had since returned from the conflict in Ukraine. In his statement, Mr. Rao stated, "We are going to write to the higher authorities to express our cooperation and support for the students."
The central government recently deported around 18,000 Indians from the Ukrainian nation. The majority of them were students who had gone for medical studies, which are much less expensive in the former Soviet country as compared to other countries.
The Russian invasion in February came as a pleasant shock to the students, who were left stuck without proper food, drinking water, and, in some cases, shelter. Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagowdar, a medical student from neighboring Karnataka, was killed in Kharkiv by Russian shelling.
Back home, a dispute emerged over whether students should travel overseas.
Even though some believe that only students who do not pass the Indian medical entrance examinations move to other countries, others claim that India doesn't even have enough medical seats to accommodate all suitable candidates.
The problem was caused by Union Minister Pralhad Joshi's statement that students studying overseas "after failing to qualify" in competitive examinations in India.
It provoked a harsh reaction from Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagowdar's grieving father, who brought attention to the huge expense of practicing medicine in India. He stated that his kid was a bright student who had to study in Ukraine since he could not manage to pursue medicine in India.
For individuals who wish to study medicine here, the donation is rather expensive. Intelligent kids will study overseas and spend less money than students from Karnataka.
"A student will have to pay in crores to get a medical seat under a reservation category like SC, ST, OBC and many more in a country like India," he stated.
