An investigative report published this week by NDTV has found continued wide-spread corruption with inspection of medical colleges by the present MCI which is still under control of disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai (see the report below). PBT has long been alleging that despite his arrest by the CBI for accepting huge bribe from a private medical college in 2010, Dr. Desai, who is still waiting for his criminal trial to begin, has managed to rule the entire MCI after he was able to put many of his long-known cronies in top positions in the MCI. In fact, Supreme Court has already issued notice against MCI and Dr. Ketan Desai in a historic PIL filed by PBT challenging the botched MCI election that helped to elect all Desai cronies at the helm of the MCI. This PIL is now waiting for final disposal at the Apex Court. In another PIL filed by the PBT which is pending for “order” on 8th February, 2016 by the Delhi High Court, serious allegations against top MCI and IMA members have been raised by the PBT for deliberately making false claim in support of Dr. Desai to make him as World Medical Association (WMA) president-elect in 2016. The findings of NDTV investigation that Dr. Desai is still controlling MCI and medical education system in India provide strong evidence in support of PBT’s contentions in both the pending PILs.
