Resident doctors in Goa will be observing a day-long strike on Wednesday to protest police action against medicos who were agitating against the Centre's proposal for OBC quota in educational institutions.

The Goa Association of Resident Doctors (GARD), along with the students and interns of Goa Medical College, have called for a day-long token strike on Wednesday, a GARD release said.

"The strike is to protest the cane-charge on protesting doctors in Mumbai and cruel treatment meted out to the medical student and resident fraternity elsewhere in India," it said.

The association has decided to have a peaceful march from Panaji bus stand to State Secretariat and a sit-in in Goa Medical College Complex, Bambolim, near Panaji.
