The march will begin from MAMC and culminate at Parliament street in New Delhi.Medical students will stage a day long nationwide protest rally today against the proposal to provide 27 per cent reservation to OBCs in Central Government educational institutions.

The march will commence at around 10.30 am at the Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) and culminate at Parliament Street where the students will hold the protest.

“Tomorrow’s protest will be a show of strength and it will begin at Maulana Azad Medical College and then we will demonstrate at Parliament street,” AIIMS Students’ Union spokesperson Sasmit Sarangi said.

He reiterated that Tuesday’s protests are being held to send across the message that the stir will not “die down” and the indefinite strike will continue. Sarangi said Tuesday’s protest will be held at several places in the country and be a “show of strength”.

The students, on an indefinite strike from April 27, have been demanding a rollback of the proposal. Simultaneously, medical students in other parts of the country including Mumbai, Shimla, Amritsar and Rajasthan, will also hold demonstrations.
