Medical Students Go On A Strike Over Quota System; Demand To Meet Arjun Singh

Students in five of the leading medical colleges in New Delhi went on a strike in order to protest against the quota system in elite colleges//, which they called as unfair. Students of AIIMS, Safdarjung, Maulana Azad Medical College, Lady Hardinge and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital went on a strike on Wednesday and tried to meet HRD Minister Arjun Singh.

Amitasha Sinha, a medical student leader and spokesman of 'Youth for Equality' told the PTI that the students had also asked resident doctors to join the strike. "Let us see if doctors also join us," said Sinha, who is a student of Lady Hardinge Medical College in the capital. She added that the strike would go on until the students were allowed to meet with Arjun Singh. The decision to strike was taken after 150 protesting students were dispersed from near his residence by police who resorted to using tear gas.

Meanwhile, the Resident Doctors Association is holding a meeting to decide on what action to take in view of the new quota system, "We have not arrived at a decision but a meeting is on," said Sumir Sethi, the President of the Association. Students are of the opinion that the healthcare system in the country would be badly hit, if the quotas in elite institutions were hiked from 22.5 per cent to 49.5 per cent.
