Agitating anti-reservation medicos on Monday night decided to continue their strike despite an appeal by the Supreme Court to call off their fortnight-long stir.
The decision was taken at a meeting of representatives from 30 medical colleges across the country.
"We have decided to continue the strike. We respect the Supreme Court directive to the Centre to explain the basis on which it went ahead with the OBC quota. This has strengthened our charter of demands," Dr Vinod Patra, President of AIIMS Resident Doctors' Association said.
Asked about the Supreme Court appeal to end the strike, he said "we will consider it as soon as it reaches us."
