Former Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddharamaiah, has urged the Central government to intervene in helping 31 people from the Hakki Pikki tribe who are stranded in Sudan due to violence. Reports suggest that the group has run out of food supplies following the clashes over the weekend.

The Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority has informed the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) about the situation and has advised the stranded group to follow the instructions of the Indian Embassy in Sudan and to not venture out. Dr Manoj Rajan, Commissioner of the Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority, confirmed that the MEA is working on the matter.

The opposition Congress party in the state has criticized the BJP governments in both the state and the centre for not taking enough steps to rescue the stranded group from Sudan as soon as possible.

The situation in Sudan remains tense with ongoing clashes between the government and rebels, and the Indian government has advised its citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to the country.

The HakkiPikki tribal communities have a fascinating history, with ancestral ties to the legendary Ranapratap Singh. They belong to the Kshatriya or warrior community and had to relocate to southern India following their defeat by Mughal kings.

The HakkiPikki tribes are a semi-nomadic people who are divided into four clans: Gujrathioa, Kaliwala, Mewara, and Panwara. They are known to speak several languages of South India, including Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam, as well as Vagribooli, which is similar to Gujarati.
