NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday lamented Indians going to countries such as Ukraine to study medicine and said India should have developed the capacity to attract students from across the globe rather than "our youths having to go abroad".
Kejriwal's remarks came after the Union Ministry of Education said more than 30 lakh Indians went abroad for higher education during 2017-2022. "75 years after Independence, we should have, by now, developed the capacity to attract youth from across globe to study in India rather than our youth having to go abroad.

Sad that our youth have to go to countries like Ukraine to study medicine? India can become no 1 destination for education," the Delhi chief minister tweeted. In a written response to a question by JD(U) MP Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh and others, Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar said 30 lakh Indians went abroad for higher education during 2017-2022.
