Published on 23 June, 2017 at 11:58 am By

Keeping up with the “tradition” of helping Indians in distress, the MEA has directed the Aviation Ministry to airlift Indians from Qatar.

The Aviation Ministry has confirmed that Air India will operate special flights between Kerala and Doha from June 25 to July 8 and will use its 186-seater Boeing 737. Jet Airways will also fly extra flights between Doha and Mumbai using 168-seater B-737.

Sushma Swaraj spoke to the aviation minister, AG Raju, on Monday, to operate extra flights to airlift Indians who have been able to get tickets but needed to get back to India from Qatar. The aviation ministry said that all necessary steps are being taken to timely move Indian nationals from Qatar.

India is keeping a close eye on the situation in Qatar where 7 lakh Indians live and work. After several Arab nations, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, severed ties with Qatar, the situation in the country has worsened. Saudi Arabia has stopped the supplies of food and other essential commodities, creating a shortage in the nation.



In a recent development, the neighbors of Qatar have issues a demand list to end the crisis. Kuwait, who is mediating the crisis, handed over a list to the Qatari government on Thursday which included several steep demands.

 

The demands include shutting down of Al-Jazeera, ending diplomatic ties with Iran, closing down a Turkish military base in Qatar, severing ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and all other organizations. The nations have given Qatar 10 days to fulfill the demands and have asked the state to pay an unspecified sum as compensation.
