Reserved category doctors seek President's intervention

A group of pro-reservation doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences has requested President A P J Abdul Kalam's intervention to ensure strict implementation of reservation and end to 'victimisation' of reserved category students and doctors at the institute.

Reacting to the gherao of the sub-dean of the institute, Medicos Forum for Equal Opportunities has called upon the President to exercise his moral authority and ask the government to stop vacillating on the issue of reservation which has only fuelled upper caste chauvinism.

In a statement, the Forum alleged that doctors and students of reserved category were being discriminated against in the institute and victimised and demanded an end to it.

Forum also said government must fulfill its promise of increasing the number of seats in higher education so that the interests of general category of students were also safeguarded.

"In case the government fails to act on our demands, the Medicos Forum shall feel constraines to chalk out straegy appropriate for the situation," the statement said.
