India has made a plan to evacuate Indians trapped in Afghanistan. This mission will be carried out through two flights every day. Permission has also been received for this from the US and NATO forces. Government sources have informed news agency ANI about this. Significantly, after the Taliban occupation here, various governments are evacuating their citizens from Afghanistan. At present, American and NATO military forces are handling the responsibility at Kabul Airport. However, the situation is getting worse here.
Reports say that more than 300 Indians have been evacuated from different parts of Afghanistan to Kabul. At the same time, Air India operated the first flight on 15 August to evacuate the stranded Indians. The flight had to spin in the air for about an hour before landing at Hamid Karzai International Airport. Indian Air Force has already evacuated 180 passengers from here. This included many other diplomats including India’s ambassador to Afghanistan.
Will keep bringing back our citizens
The Ministry of External Affairs has said that the biggest challenge in evacuating Indians is the operation of Kabul Airport. The airspace here was closed after the Taliban took over Kabul. Due to this, the process of evacuating people from there was interrupted. However, this did not affect India’s campaign. Union Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said on Friday that we operated flights continuously from Kabul. After the closure of the airspace in Kabul, the Indian Air Force’s C130 Hercules Globemaster aircraft continued to ferry our citizens from there. Every day we are bringing 130 to 150 Indians back to our country. This mission will continue in future also.
