Governor Assures Investigation of the West Bengal Medical Council

On the occasion of the 9th Anniversary of PBT, a historic public rally was held today (Dec. 30) at Metro Channel in Kolkata where many victims of “medical negligence” attended coming from distant places. A PBT delegation met with the West Bengal Governor, Mr. M.K. Narayanan, and delivered a memorandum demanding immediate disbandment of the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) that has been riddled with corruption and inefficiency (see attached). The Governor assured PBT that he will look into these specific allegations against the WBMC and take necessary actions against the council. PBT demands that a new medical council must be established through a fair and transparent election of ALL registered medical practitioners.PBT Memorand. to Governor (Dec. 30, 2010)
