Shimla: The striking medicos, junior doctors and resident doctors of Indira Gandhi Medical College, Shimla and R.P. Medical College Tanda (Kangra), took out a candle light procession in protest against reservation to other backward classes in central educational institutions.
The striking medicos and doctors also organized a blood donation camp in which 109 units of blood were collected and ran parallel OPDs. The medicos vowed to continue their struggle till their demand to drop the proposal was accepted.
Meanwhile, Himachal Pradesh Medical Officers Association also endorsed the call for one-day 'medical bandh' on May 25 next.
The agitating medicos are also trying to muster the support of the people and students of other colleges for their cause and hoped a large number of students and traders would also join the medical bandh to express their solidarity.
