PBT Files New PIL In Delhi High Court Against Dr. Ketan Desai And MCI Corruption

In accordance to the order passed last week by Supreme Court of India, PBT has filed a new writ petition (PIL) in Delhi High Court today seeking investigation of the wide-spread corruption inside the Medical Council of India (MCI) and direction for removal of disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, from the post of World Medical Association (WMA) president-elect for 2016. Despite facing criminal trial for serious allegations of bribery and corruption and having suspended medical license, Dr. Desai was reinstated last year as the WMA president-elect after several top MCI/IMA leaders including chairman of the MCI Grievance Committee, Dr. Ajay Kumar, made false submission before the world medical body that all charges against Dr. Desai have been dropped by the Indian authority. The MCI president and a long-known Desai crony, Dr. Jayshreeben Mehta, also harassed the chief vigilance officer (CVO) as she refused to take any action against the top MCI/IMA leaders including Dr. Ajay Kumar, Dr. Vinay Aggarwal and Dr. Sudipto Roy, who were found guilty for unethical conduct and helping Dr. Desai to regain the post of WMA president-elect. All these important issues will come before Delhi High Court when this new PIL comes up for hearing soon.

    Dear Dr.Kunal Saha
    Thanks for your efforts in right directions. One can not fight corruption while residing in India that to in service sector. I am suffering for last more than one year.
    If you can take up the issue of corruption in medical education in the form of violation of SC Judgment regarding Fee Fixation Committee and Admission Committee which are violated with impunity in all most all States including Delhi, U.P., Haryana, etc. of which I have documentary evidence. But no advocate is ready to take up the issue and I struggling for even survival.
    I am forced to think that whether I am living in Independent India or not?
    Best of Luck!
