WHEN SCHOOLS re-open after the summer holidays, the IITians have planned to hold debates and promote membership drives in all education institutions in urban and rural areas for mobilising support against reservation. This was one of the things decided at the Bangalore meeting convened by students of all the IITs and other professional institutes.

Aggrieved by the reservation policy they have also constituted a national coordination committee (NCC) and hope to take their agitation to the national level.

According to Chandershekhar, who has been inducted in the NCC as the representative from UP, one representative from all 18 states, which had participated at the Bangalore meet would be inducted into the committee. He said that in order to mobilise the masses a slogan, ‘One coin, one sign, save the Nation’ has been floated. Signatures of at least one crore citizens along with their contribution of Re 1 will be taken to enable the NCC to take all measures to fight the reservation policy. He further said that a memorandum containing one crore signatures would be handed over to the President, before the Monsoon Session of Parliament.

Meanwhile, ex-armymen from Lucknow visited the GSVM Medical college and extended their support to students in their fight against OBC reservation.
