Medicos Continue Agitation, Plan Massive Rally On May 27

Services in all state-run medical colleges in West Bengal continued to be paralysed for the second day today as medicos intensified their stir against the Centre's decision to introduce OBC quota in educational institutions from 2007.

Over 2000 interns, housestaff and post graduate trainees in nine medical colleges and a couple of hundred more in two dental colleges boycotted classes as well as out patient services to hold protest meetings, dharnas and hunger strikes.
