Pro-reservation body seeks removal of AIIMS Director

Condemning the signature campaign for removal of Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramdoss, a pro-reservation doctor's association today sought removal of AIIMS Director P Venugopal and some senior doctors for allegedly being behind the agitation by medical students in Delhi against reservations for OBCs in higher education.

"The AIIMS Director, Superintendent and some faculty members of the institution instigated the anti-quota protests against 27 per reservation for OBCs in higher educational instutions and must be terminated immediately", General Secretary of Doctors' Association for Social Equality (DASE) G R Ravindrananth told a press conference here.

On the demand by some Left organisations to exclude the creamy layer from the 27 per cent reservation, he said DASE has requested the organisations to avoid such a demand as it could strengthen that by the anti-reservation groups and delay implementation of reservations.

The association, he said, also welcomed Tamil Nadu Health Minister K K S S R Ramachandran's announcement that over 1500 doctos selected through the state Public Service Commission would be appointed for filling up vacancies in government hospitals and that 1700 doctors appointed on contract basis would be regularised.

Requesting the state government to avoid disturbing the contract doctors while appointing those selected through the TNPSC, Ravindranath said DASE wanted the government to regularise contract doctors from the date of appointment as temporary doctors for the purpose of seniority.
