Intensifying their agitation against the government decision to introduce reservations in elite educational institutions, AIIMS resident doctors on Tuesday decided to go on mass casual leave on August 24 while medical students announced launching of surprise demonstrations at different places across the capital.

"The resident doctors at AIIMS will go on a mass casual leave on August 24 but emergency and casualty services will continue to function as usual," AIIMS Resident Doctors Association spokesperson Anil Sharma told PTI.

He said the students' union of medical colleges will be in the forefront of the agitation as it was they who were the worst affected by the government's decision to introduce a bill in Parliament proposing reservation in government-aided elite educational institutions.

University students also announced that they would intensify the agitation against introduction of quota in elite educational institutions.

"We will intensify our agitation and launch surprise protest demonstrations at a different place in a different manner," Jatin Jain of the Indraprastha University said without elaborating.
