LUCKNOW: Students from Uttar Pradesh who finally made it across to Romania from Ukraine are settling in camps set up for them.
While one group at a camp in the heart of Romanian territory is happy with the facilities and arrangements, those at another shelter near the border shared complaints with TOI.
Students at a camp in Bucharest received pizzas and provided all utilities.
Neeraj Gupta de Banda, an MBBS student at the Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University, had an empty stomach for hours at the Ukrainian border and was delighted to be served pizza at the camp.
“We also had juice and a choice of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options,” Neeraj added.
“There are 78 students in this shelter near Bucharest airport, and we received a lot of love, affection from Romanians,” said Husneyara Ansari from Jaunpur.
Rishika Ghosh from Lucknow, an MBBS student at Vinnitsa National Medical University finally crossed the border after a five-day trip and is in a camp near the border.
“This camp is run by a non-governmental organization and volunteers. We are safe, we have a roof and basic amenities, but there was no water or electricity,” she added.
The Indian Embassy has not made any provision here, this camp is run by volunteers, she added.
Students who were eager to return home after an arduous journey aired their grievances on social media, following which Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, who is camping in Romania to oversee the operation Ganga, visited the camp and interacted with them.
