Minister’s SOS to Jyotiraditya Scindia to bring home critically-ill Jammu man from Tunisia

Union Minister of State (MoS) Jitendra Singh has sent an SOS to Civil Aviation Minister Jyotraditya Scindia to bring back an Indian citizen who is critically ill from Tunisia. Jitendra Singh spoke to Jyotiraditya Scindia on the matter and sought his personal indulgence.

The family of a 35-year-old man, a resident of Jammu who is a critically-ill kidney patient, wants him to come to India. However, owing to the acute medical problem, the foreign airlines operating on that sector avoid carrying such patients to avoid the risk of possible mishap on board during long flights, Jitendra Singh said in a tweet.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, BJP leader Jitendra Singh wrote, “We have received a request from Sh Raman Kaushal S/o Late Sh Rishi Kumar Kaushal, resident of #Jammu, stating that his the 35 year old son Aditya, presently living in Tunisia, is seriously ill with history of Kidney transplant and Kidney failure. The family wants the son to come back to India and join his family.”

He further wrote, “The issue here is that there are only foreign Airlines operating on that sector and because of the acute medical problem, they usually avoid carrying such a patient to avoid risk of possible mishap on board particularly when the flight time is over 14 hours.” (sic).
