Junior Doctors Protest Against Reservation Bill

The anti reservation movement has gained momentum following the Union Cabinet's go ahead signal towards introducing a Bill in the current session of Parliament for providing 27 per cent reservations to Other Backward Castes (OBCs) in government-aided institutions of higher education including professional ones.

Angry at the government's proposal, members of Junior Doctors Association (JDA) of Moti Lal Nehru Medical College wore black bands on their arms in protest and forced the closure of all OPD services at the busy SRN Hospital this morning.

Furious over the police crack down on Tuesday in New Delhi on medicos and other students who protested against the government move, members of the JDA came together near the emergency wing of Swaroop Rani Nehru (SRN) Hospital on Wednesday morning, raising slogans against the Union Government. They planned to shut down the Out Patient Departments (OPDs) for which the patients had already arrived in the hospital in large numbers.

Following this the junior doctors visited the OPDs in group and forced their closure.

Dr Neeraj, president of MLN Medical College Junior Doctors' Association said, "The move is in protest against the Union Government's decision to introduce OBC reservations and the brutality with which students protesting its decision were treated in New Delhi on Tuesday."

The MLN Medical College Junior Doctors' Association president added that the junior doctors had decided to hold a meeting on Wednesday evening at 8 pm to plan on the future course of their protest against the Union Government's decision on reservation for the Other Backward Castes (OBCs).
