Agitating city doctors, protesting the Centre's move to implement 27 per cent quota for OBCs in institutions of higher learning, have decided to return their gold medals to President APJ Abdul Kalam.
Altogether 128 doctors of Indore, who were awarded gold medals for their excellence in various subjects during their studies, have decided to return their medals to the President in protest against reservation, Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors Association (JDA) General Secretary Dr Anand Rai said.
He said he had "requested an appointment" with the President, adding that the medicos were returning the medals because the doctors felt they were of no use to them under the quota regime.
Meanwhile, striking medicos polished shoes at the Regal Square in protest even as their relay hunger strike on the issue entered 10th day.
