With no help coming from either the embassy or their airline company, 46 tired and angry French nationals stuck in New Delhi since Friday have decided to take action.
Some are even running out of their medication. “I brought a stockpile, but it’s gone,” Vidalie says. “I really need this medicine.”
“Air India officials say the problem is not their responsibility,” says Jenny Gérard from Paris. “Our hotel has, however, offered us bus transport to another establishment in the centre of Delhi and we were able to negotiate a reasonable price.”
“We had an Indian television channel, the NDTV, come here in an attempt to try to get things moving,” she says. But when the cameraman arrived on Sunday to film the group, tensions flared.
“They said that they were overwhelmed and could do nothing for us,” Gérard says. “But their whole purpose is to help French nationals abroad.”
