Agitating students from Delhi’s five medical colleges, the Delhi University and other institutions are gearing up to take the anti-quota stir to the ‘next stage’.
“A meeting is being held with representatives of several organisations, including the United Students of Delhi University, to chalk out the future course of action,” said AIIMS Students’ Union spokesperson Sasmit Sarangi.
“We are formulating the strategy for the next stage of the agitation,” he added. Sarangi said at present efforts are being made to coordinate with other organisations to make the agitation wider.
On Tuesday the students held peaceful demonstrations against the proposal to provide 27 per cent reservation to OBCs in Central Government educational institutions.
They raised anti-government, anti-Arjun Singh slogans and marched to Jantar Mantar after gathering at Maulana Azad Medical College near ITO in New Delhi.
Students under the ‘Youth for Equality’ banner said medical students from all over India would gather in Delhi for a ‘mass rally’ to highlight the issue on May 12.
A signature campaign will be launched on May 6 at India Gate. The signed poster would be submitted to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her intervention into the matter sought.
