J. Aslam Basha, chairman of the minorities wing of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, has written to External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar urging him to repatriate Non Resident Indians in Maldives through a special flight.

Mr. Basha said more than 29,000 Indians live in Maldives and about 22,000 of them live in Malé', the capital city.

Mr. Basha requested the External Affairs Minister to take immediate, urgent steps to repatriate NRIs and Indian social workers there through the Indian High Commission at Maldives by enabling a flight service at the Indian government’s expense, and bring them back to India.
