Shiv Sena on Thursday called on the Center to bring back 39 Indian sailors stranded in Chinese waters. Party spokesperson and Rajya Sabha member Priyanka Chaturvedi (Priyanka Chaturvedi) wrote the letter to External Affairs Minister S Jayashankar. “Lacking the support of the central government, 39 sailors have been left to their fate and their families are fighting for their return,” he said. The families of the sailors are moving around and no one is helping them, most of them are from Maharashtra. ”

Significantly, two cargo ships, including 39 Indians, MV Anastasia and MV Jag Anand, were stranded in Chinese waters because they were not allowed to take their cargo there. “The stalemate is due to the trade war and both ships have been forced to anchor in Chinese ports,” Chaturvedi said in the letter. Chinese authorities refused to allow ships to bring their cargo, and did not allow other sailors to leave for crew. “

He said MV Anastasia had been stopped at the Bohai Sea in China, MV Jag Anand was anchoring at Jingtang port.
