Youth for Equality hits back. Protest in New Delhi

6th May 2008, 6.15p.m.
In protest of Govt's move to implement reservation in PG level courses Youth For Equality formed a human chain of students from institutions across Delhi like Delhi University, JNU,GGSIPU, MAMC, UCMS, DCE and AIIMS. Around 500 students formed human chain with Banners and posters at inner circle of Connought Place (central Park). Then students marched towards janpath with the effigy of Mr Arjun Singh (HRD Minister) and blocked the traffic for more than half an hour at Janpath and burnt the effigy of Arjun Singh. The march was aimed towards the residence of Ms Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson UPA, however they were prevented to move forward at Janpath. Police used water cannon to disperse the mass but the students who are deeply hurt by the manipulation of Supreme Courts order in Implementing OBC Quota, they resisted.

Around 350 students were arrested from Janpath and are detained at Parliament Street Police station. Students are not released till now(At this time).
Our demands are:

ü No extension of reservation beyond graduation as per the Court's order.
ü No manipulation in Creamy layer limit.
ü Fresh list of beneficiaries has to be furnished by Govt before implementing reservation.
ü Before implementing reservation Infrastructure must be made available in order to retain the quality of education.
ü Time bound reservation.

We are gearing up this protest; if Govt goes ahead with such autocratic attitude in implementing reservation then we will go for nation wide agitation.

With Best regards
