Pro Reservation Doctors seek Kalam's intervention

New Delhi: A group of pro-reservation doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) 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 Union 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.
