are associations, parents of students and public in general - to gather near India Gate to express solidarity with the protesting doctors," Kumar said.
"We have received support from over 80 colleges - both medical and non-medical - and a list of all those colleges has been prepared for public knowledge."
The protesting doctors may have set up some temporary camps to treat patients but it is clearly not enough for the poor who cannot afford private medical care.
"Since Wednesday afternoon, I have been in the campus of Safdarjung Hospital for my husband's treatment, who is having some chest complications. But so far I have failed to get an appointment," said Sagarika Yadav from Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.
Sunil Singh, standing in front of the emergency ward of AIIMS, has also a bad experience to share.
"When some of your relatives are ill, waiting becomes too frustrating. I have to wait for four hours before a doctor looked at my six-year-old son, who has been suffering from fever and vomiting since last evening," Singh said.
"In big hospitals, the government needs to arrange for more doctors during emergency situations. For the past seven days, it's not the politicians or rich people who are suffering. Whenever there is some problem, it's the poor who face the brunt."
Meanwhile, students from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and IIT-Delhi have joined the ant-reservation protest at AIIMS. While some IIT students have joined the hunger strike, around 60 JNU students marched in a rally at the AIIMS campus denouncing the reservation move by Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
