Protest against all odds

More than 300 activists of Youth For Equality gathered at the Supreme Court and staged a peaceful dharana at the Supreme Court lpremises and demanded the Goverment to implement the recent Court judgment in letter and spirit.Our demands were:

No reservation beyond graduation level. Supreme Court is categorical to refuse OBC reservation at the Post-Graduation level.

Identify reviewed castes for the purpose of OBC reservation. Supreme Court ordered the government to come with a new list not the decade old list of OBCs

Without the proper increase of infrastructure no reservation. Till date there is not a single rupee spent on infrastructure increase as per the RTI answer from the HRD

Supreme Court is unanimous to review the reservation policy. A Judicial Commission for the review of the OBC reservation

Maintain proper cut-off mark for the selection of OBC candidate as per the Supreme Court ruling.

Later on the YFE activists were brutally handled by the police. Several members suffered serious injuries and some of them required hospitalization. Susequently, large number of YFE members were arrested and taken away to Tilak Nagar Police Station.
