Vande Bharat Mission - No return flights for Gulf Kannadigas in third phase

Bengaluru: After easing the lockdown rules, the central government has decided to bring NRI Indians stranded in other countries to their homeland in the third phase of 'Vande Bharat Mission'. Gulf Kannadigas who have been waiting for an opportunity to come back for various reasons are worried as there are no listed flights to bring Kannadigas back to their state in the third phase.
The third phase list in which flights are being operated from May 26 to June 4, has flights from Gulf countries like Dubai, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Muscat to different Indian states. But none of these flights have Mangaluru or Bengaluru as their destinations. There are a number of flights to Kannur.
Taking into account the plight of Kannadigas stuck in the Gulf region, office bearers of certain Kannada organizations in those countries have got in touch with union ministers D V Sadananda Gowda and Suresh Angadi, who represent Karnataka, and requested them to mitigate the hardships of these people. Both the ministers have written to the civil aviation minister, urging him to facilitate the return of Kannadigas in the Gulf at the earliest.
