In an unthinkable development possible only in Gujarat where the tainted ex-head of MCI, Dr. Ketan Desai, still maintains total control over the medical education system, he was elected “uncontested” to the Gujarat University for a registered medical graduate seat. Only last month, the Medical Council of India (MCI) cancelled Dr. Desai’s medical registration in response to a complaint filed by PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha. How a man with no valid medical registration be elected to a top university post reserved only for registered medical graduate? PBT has already written to the Gujarat chief minister, Narendra Modi, for immediate cancellation of Dr. Desai’s nomination to the university Senate. This is a despicable attempt by the most corrupt medical leader in Indian history to make another return to power and plunder Indian healthcare system once again. Dr. Desai is out on bail and still facing criminal trial but CBI has shown little intention for expedited justice in the recent time in this historic case that has far-reaching consequences on healthcare in India.
