The Sri Lanka Deputy High Commission is in the process of compiling details of Sri Lankan students in South India and working on ensuring their safety and welfare, the Foreign Relations Ministry said today.

The ministry said that there are around 600 Sri Lankan students all over India dispersed throughout various States. In Southern India alone 191 students have registered themselves at the Deputy High Commission. 

Accordingly, 62 students are in Tamil Nadu, nine in Telangana, four in Kerala, four in Andhra Pradesh and 112 students in Karnataka.
    
The Deputy High Commission said it was in touch with the students and respective institutions to ensure their welfare and has advised all students to stay indoors and remain safe with all precautionary measures. This Mission constantly monitors their situation and is committed to assist and ensure the safety and welfare of the students.

Further, the  Ministry has launched  “Contact Sri Lanka” a web portal welcoming Sri Lankans living abroad to voluntarily register at www.contactsrilanka.mfa.gov.lk.

Registering online in the web portal  will allow  the Ministry to reach out  during  emergencies  such as  the  COVID-19 outbreak. This portal will connect Overseas Sri Lankans with stakeholders in Sri Lanka  and a network  of Sri Lanka  Missions overseas. A dedicated team of  officials  have already been assigned  by the  Ministry of Foreign Relations  to respond  to queries  of Overseas Sri Lankans  and  also to act  as an online help desk during emergencies.

Registration by country will also  allow the Ministry to propose concrete  policy decisions to critical response situations,  which include evacuation depending on the  number  of emergency  assistance  requests generated. Therefore, Sri Lankans living abroad are invited to benefit from this portal.

    The biggest Time Bomb in relation to Coronavirus in the whole world, is India. It’s population and unhygienic living conditions and practices makes it potentially the most dangerous place in the world to avoid in these dangerous times. In the Spanish Flu of 1918 which killed over 50 million people all over the world, 8 million alone died in India, the majority of deaths were in Bombay. Then this flu spread to Sri Lanka from India, via Mannar boat service to India, and killed few thousands all over Sri Lanka. We have to cut off all links to India to stay safe.

    It is a common knowledge in Sri Lanka, your paper protects the reputation of India by denying any comments which exposes India negatively. So I am not going to write any comments. Sri Lanka desperately needs a paper that looks after our own interest and not of a foreign country.
