Hundreds of doctors and staff of government hospitals on Thursday hold a protest march in support of social activist Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement.

Doctors, medical students and staff of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Safdarjung Hospital, Lady Hardinge Medical College (LHMC) and Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital took part in the march from Safdarjung Sports Injury Centre to India Gate.

"We all believe in Anna's cause. What is wrong in demanding a corruption free society? Our future generations deserve to live in a non-corrupt country," said a doctor from Lady Hardinge.

According to the agitating professionals, the march was only symbolic and all of them have been doing their regular duties. "We have all found time to support a cause we all firmly believe in. At least Anna has raised his voice and we have vowed to support him," said Dr Sumit Choudhary, president, Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA).
