Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Vyas Jaganmohan Reddy has inquired about the incident of sending back some Telugu students from America. As per reports, as many as 21 Indians who had gone to the US to pursue their study abroad dreams were sent back due to immigration issues.
The AP Chief Minister Vyas Jaganmohan Reddy inquired about this incident as there were Telugus among the group of students who had gone to the US.
“Reddy is looking into this matter and will address it to the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India for resolving this at the earliest as all students have a valid USA visa for higher studies…and also keeping in view of the careers of these students of AP,” said an official of the state-government body Andhra Pradesh Non-Resident Telugu Society (APNRTS) in a statement according to PTI.
Though the Indian students had appropriate study visa, the students were not allowed to enter the country to pursue their study abroad plans.
Following this incident, the Andhra Pradesh government has said that CBP officials should consider granting entry to these students. Further, the state government appealed to the students to be prepared to answer any question from the American officials and also carry all proofs on financials and other relevant documents, including understanding non-immigrant visa laws and gaining knowledge about the varsity and course while heading to other countries for their study abroad plans.
