Post 5th Day of Indefinite Hunger Strike - Antireservation.Com [News Archives]


Youth For Equality activists from different medical colleges in Delhi have boycotted their classes and set on Indefinite Hunger Strike opposing OBC reservation in Higher Educational Institutions. More than 100 Students from Maulana Azad Medical College(MAMC), University College of Medical Sciences(UCMS), Lady Harding Medical College(LHMC) are on Indefinite Hunger Strike. Hunger Strike started on 22nd May morning at Maulana Azad Medical College(MAMC) premises.

Despite the repeated request from Principal Secretary Health who has visited the Hunger Strikers, the activists are firm on their decision to continue the strike. We do not oppose any caste or community but why the present generation will suffer the caste based discrimination.

IMA representatives visited MAMC today to raise the moral of the students and offered all possible cooperation. DMA followed the IMA to show solidarity. The interns of UCMS and MAMC joined the strike.

During April 2006 just after the declaration of reservation for OBCs in higher education by the Govt YFE protested vehemently against Caste based reservation and the whole nation has witnessed the protest. Then the matter went to Supreme Court and honorable Court has given its verdict.

After 2 years of protest the present situation is not at all different than whatever it was before. Now reservation is being given on the caste basis as it was before and we oppose it.

We will continue our strike till we achieve the goal of an INDIA FREE FROM CASTE BASED DISCRIMINATION.

YFE Activists at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) also joined the protest. Yesterday evening there was a candle march at Banaras City to show the solidarity with the Hunger strikers in Delhi.

We will spread this strike across the nation to defeat every attempts made by Govt to Divide the society on caste line.

We demand

* Rollback of reservations based on caste.
* Implementation of Right to Education Act which guarantees free, compulsory and quality education, a fundamental right of every child.
* Clarification, by the SUPREME COURT collegium, regarding the recent observation made by the honorable Chief Justice, regarding Creamy Layer -class concept/individual concept

We appeal all the law abiding citizens of this nation to come forward to save this nation from further division on caste line.
