PBT Files Historic PIL In Supreme Court Against MCI, IMA, Health Ministry and World Medical Association (WMA) For Reinstating Dr. Ketan Desai As WMA President Through Lies and Deception

PBT has filed a new public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court today seeking direction to the Medical Council of India (MCI) and Ministry of Health to take appropriate measures for immediate removal of disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, from the prestigious post of World Medical Association (WMA) president-elect. Apart from MCI, Indian Medical Association (IMA), Ministry of Health, Dr. Ketan Desai and Dr. Ajay Kumar (senior MCI and IMA member), this PIL has also impleaded France-based WMA for their role in promoting Dr. Desai who is free on bail facing serious criminal charges for bribery and corruption and whose license to practice medicine still remains suspended by the MCI.

This unprecedented PIL has brought forward a large number of supporting documents to show how top MCI/IMA members including Dr. Ajay Kumar (who is presently the chairman of MCI Grievance Committee) went before the world medical body (WMA) and presented false information that all charges against Dr. Desai have been withdrawn by the Indian authority only to hoodwink the WMA to reinstate Dr. Desai as their president-elect for 2016. This PIL has also brought forward evidence of wide-spread corruption inside the MCI and how the inept Indian Health Ministry has kept blind eyes to the ongoing medical corruption in the MCI. The PIL has also presented evidence of threat and harassment by the present MCI president against then Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO), Mr. H.K. Jethi, who was in charge of investigation of allegations against the MCI members for helping Dr. Desai regain the post of WMA president. Notices have been issued by the Apex Court in a separate but related PIL filed last year by PBT against the alleged rigging of the MCI election by Dr. Desai and his cronies.
