In a statement, Priyanka said, “I am heartbroken that I will not be able to attend the convocation ceremony and receive my honorary doctorate in person at the Bareilly International University today. We’ve been at the airport since this morning waiting for clearance from the ATC. My team had also explored all other possible options to get there but the fog has put to rest all plans for today.
The statement further read, “I was really looking forward to going back to Bareilly... not just to receive the honorary doctorate but also to see old friends and family and just reconnect with a city that has been such an important part of my life.”
“I want to thank the University for being so understanding and amazing and I would to wish every graduate all the very best as they set forth on a new journey. I will see you all again very soon,” concluded the statement.
