Pro-quota students on Thursday held a rally in New Delhi demanding quick implementation of reservations for OBCs in higher education institutions.

"Reservations are necessary for providing a level-playing field for students of the backward community," Udit Raj, President, Indian Justice Party said addressing the gathering.

"The day there is equality in economic, political and social backgrounds of the student community, there will be no need for reservations," he added.

Representatives from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Nagpur University and Indian National Medical Association, the break-away faction of the Indian Medical Association, participated in the rally.
