Ahmedabad, Jan 2: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take immediate steps to ensure safety of the people from the state in riot-torn Kenya.

Modi said the people from Gujarat were the worst hit in the current turmoil in Kenya. He dashed off a second letter within a week to Dr Singh to underline the delicate situation in the African nation. Mr Modi said many people want to come back to India temporarily till the situation improves there.

The centre should issue emergency visas to affected people and, if necessary, a special aircraft should be sent to Nairobi to bring back the Indians, he said in an official release here.

Mr Modi said current provision of yellow fever vaccines should be relaxed in the case of Indians in Kenya.
