Supreme Court Grants “Liberty” To Move High Court Seeking Justice Against Selection Of Dr. Ketan Desai As World Medical Association (WMA) President

After hearing arguments for the PIL filed by PBT against the deliberate and sinister promotion of disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, to the prestigious post of WMA president-elect, division bench headed by the Chief Justice in Supreme Court of India (SC) granted permission to approach the High Court seeking appropriate reliefs for removal of Dr. Desai from the post of WMA president-elect (see the SC order below). This PIL was filed after several high-rank members of MCI and Indian Medical Association (IMA) made a false claim that all charges against Dr. Desai has been dropped by the Indian authority even though Dr. Desai remains free on bail and waiting for his criminal trial to begin for alleged bribery and corruption since he was caught red-handed by the CBI for taking huge bribe from a private medical college while Dr. Desai was still working as the MCI president in April, 2010. Apart from MCI, IMA and Dr. Ketan Desai, this unprecedented PIL also includes the international medical body (WMA) and Dr. Ajay Kumar, senior member of MCI/IMA who made the fraudulent claim before WMA with an application from the national IMA to reinstate Dr. Desai as the WMA president-elect. PBT will approach the Delhi High Court soon, as directed by the Apex Court, to bring justice for this colossal medical corruption.
