New Delhi, May 22: Medical students on Sunday turned down an appeal from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to stop their anti-quota agitation, even as the Union Health Ministry gave resident doctors in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) 24 hours to vacate hostel rooms, if they are to continue with the strike.

 

 

After a meeting with Union Health Secretary P K Hota on Sunday evening, representatives of students groups said the strike would continue as the appeal did not take into account their demands.

The meeting was attended by students from city colleges, along with the medical superintendents of the hospitals and AIIMS authorities.

Dr Kumar Harsh, spokesperson for students group Youth for Enlightenment said the striking medicos had three demands rollback of proposed OBC quotas, review of the existing reservation policy by a non-political committee and a concrete statement by the Prime minister on the issue. "The appeal does not address these criteria," he said.

 A three-member Group of Ministers had recommended a gradual increase in the seats in higher educational institutes to accommodate the proposed 27 per cent quota for OBCs.

But doctors, after a meeting of the Indian Medical Association in Mumbai, said it was not acceptable.

Hospitals in the Capital continued to operate with minimal staff with resident doctors refusing to join their duties for the eighth day running. Army doctors have been called in to help and hospitals will be holding walk-in interviews on Monday for replacements on an ad-hoc basis.

Senior residents at AIIMS were today put on 24-hour notice to vacate their hostel rooms. But residents said after their meeting with the Health Secretary that they will not back out. "We don't know where we can go, but our stand is clear. We will come up with a plan tomorrow."

"Unless the government gives us an assurance on the issue, our stand is clear, and the strike will continue," said AIIMS Student Union President Anmay Narayan.

Students also said a fresh batch would continue with their indefinite hunger strike at the premier health institute.

They have also urged the citizens to turn off all televisions and lights in their homes between 8 and 8:10 pm on Monday as a mark of protest.

Incidentally, it's during this time that the two year celebration of UPA govt is to be broadcasted, said reports.

I know this is not related to SRGMP, but for social awareness.

I hope everyone will support this cause and join in the blackout tonight.

No option but suicide - IIT Students

New Delhi, May 22: A group of students from IIT, Delhi have submitted a memorandum to President seeking permission to commit suicide if reservation to OBCs in elite educational institutions is implemented.

The students handed over the memorandum to the President's Secretariat saying they have no other option left with them if such a legislation giving 27 per cent quota to OBCs in elite educational institutions comes through, said Safal, a Youth for Equality representative.
