The list of candidates for the upcoming West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) was finalized today by the Council Election Officer and Registrar of WBMC, Mr. D.K. Ghosh. This historic election is being held after PBT moved Calcutta High Court against the Adhoc medical council which was established after Mamata Banerjee government came to power in West Bengal in 2011 but passed an ordinance, instead of holding a new election which was due for more than three years, to put 10 hand-picked doctors loyal to the Banerjee government to run the medical council. For the first time, PBT has filed its own candidates to contest in the upcoming election as conscientious doctors are now coming to join PBT in order to fight for the hapless patients to restore public trust in the healthcare delivery system. PBT has called a press conference to discuss these issues which will be held at 4 PM on Saturday (April 27, 2013) at the Calcutta Press Club. All media members, doctors and victims of medical negligence are all invited to attend this press conference where PBT president will also participate before he returns to USA.
