PBT Files New PIL Against Mamta Banerjee’s Dictatorial Formation of Adhoc West Bengal Medical Council

After coming to power last year, Mamta Banerjee’s government formed an Adhoc state medical council (WBMC) instead of holding a new and fair election which is due since 2010.  The Adhoc Council is nothing but a politically-motivated group of 10 loyal Trinomul supporters with two sitting Trinomul MLAs hand-picked by Banerjee who is both the chief minister and health minister in West Bengal.  PBT has moved a new public interest litigation (PIL) before the Calcutta High Court today (Writ Petition (W) No. 8971 of 2012) challenging the Banerjee government’s candidly undemocratic and anti-patients move demanding immediate establishment of a new Medical Council through a fair, open and impartial election (copy of the writ petition attached below).
