Marta Kotlarska, a Polish woman and her 11-year-old daughter have been blacklisted by the Ministry of External Affairs over visa-related discrepancies. On Tuesday, the mother requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enter India as she wants her daughter to continue her education in Goa.
In series of tweets to PM Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that her daughter is missing her school in Goa since the academic term has started and on account of that, 11-year-old Alicja has been crying continuously. “My daughther is out of school since 25 April. I have put public grievience on 6th April and still no reply, no action. Please help us. My 11 years old daughther is struggling…,” Kotlarska said in her latest tweets.
Kotlarska is currently in Cambodia. “Please @PMOIndia @narendramodi @AmitShah please help us. We are not criminals, we never were deported from India, we were given fresh valid visas without any problem by Indian Embassy in Poland after I paid overstay due to the misfortunate situation created by my past employer,” she added.
Marta is an artist and photographer. She went to Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru to renew her Indian visa after she returned on March 24 from Sri Lanka but she was turned away from the airport.
She had to wait for a spell in Thailand before she was given the permission to return India and take her daughter, who was studying in Goa and leave the country within a few days.
The little girl Alicja in her letter to PM Modi wrote that she is now rooted in Hinduism and spirituality and requested the PM to allow her and her mother to come back to India. They are currently in Cambodia waiting for a possible return to India.
