Over 30 tourists and seafarers from Maharashtra, including Mumbai, Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, along with dozens of other Indians, have been stranded in Sri Lanka since the nationwide lockdown was imposed and international flights were halted by the central government. All their efforts to go back, by seeking help from the Ministry of External Affairs and the Indian Embassy in Sri Lanka, have failed to yield any results.
Some of them, who are from Maharashtra, have urged Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar to intervene.
