Doctors to widen protest net

New Delhi, April 29: Medical interns and students protesting against reservation for Other Backward Classes in educational institutions are planning to involve students of the Delhi University and schools in their agitation.

With Delhi University examinations ending on May 1, the medical students under the banner of Youth for Equality are talking to school and college students to ensure their participation in a demonstration to be held on May 2.

“We are trying to involve Class XI and XII students as they are the ones who will be affected by the government’s move,” said a student representative.

The demonstration is part of a nationwide protest against the reservation move. Although the interns have postponed a hospital strike till May 12, the medical students continue to boycott classes.

New Delhi district deputy commissioner of police Anand Mohan today submitted a preliminary report in court describing the methods used to disperse protesters during Wednesday’s demonstration which turned violent.
