For this, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Transport Minister Anil Parab discussed the matter with the central government and the Rajasthan government, and successfully negotiated to bring these students back from Kota to the state, Accordingly, 70 buses were dispatched from Dhule to Kota on April 29 and as the distance from Dhule to Kota was 630 km, two drivers were assigned to each bus.
The buses started the return journey, along with these students, from Kota on Thursday afternoon at 1500 hours and on the way to Nashik, they were examined at Chandwad this afternoon at around 1500 hrs.
