Student unions' show of solidarity with junior doctors

VISAKHAPATNAM, JULY 24. Members of the city units of the All India Students' Federation (AISF) and the All India Youth Federation (AIYF) on Saturday staged a dharna in front of the Collectorate to express solidarity with junior doctors who have been on an indefinite fast protesting against the cancellation of 295 seats in medical and dental colleges all over the State.

They demanded cancellation of GOs 184 and 185, which gave 25 per cent seats to the management which they termed unjust, and said that the public sector should be protected by filling the seats purely with meritorious candidates. If the issues were not sorted out, the AISF and AIYF would launch a State-wide agitation, they warned.
