Negligent Doctor Presiding International Medical Conference In Kolkata: PBT Calls Public Protest Rally On Saturday (Oct. 19)

In an unprecedented act to silence public voice of protest against medical corruption, organizers of “Medicon International 2013”, a medical symposium scheduled to start in Kolkata on Oct. 19, 2013, moved a petition before Calcutta High Court seeking ban against any public demonstration during Medicon 2013.  Justice Sanjeeb Banerjee of Calcutta High Court today refused to ban peaceful public rally of protest.  The controversy starts when Dr. Sukumar Mukherjee, Kolkata-based senior doctor who is known across India for his conviction by the Supreme Court for medical negligence and who has also been penalized by the National Consumer Forum (NCDRC) to pay the highest compensation in Indian medico-legal history for causing death of Anuradha Saha, was selected as the president of Medicon 2013 seemingly to repair his tainted public image.  The Medicon 2013 is also touting the name of Royal College of Physicians in London since some of their members are also participating in this conference.  But after PBT’s president, Dr. Kunal Saha contacted the Royal College, their president informed that they had no knowledge about the tainted background of Dr. Mukherjee.  PBT inviting all conscientious citizens and victims of medical negligence to attend this public rally at 12 Noon on Satruday in front of Hyatt Regency Hotel at Salt Lake, Kolkata where Medicon 2013 will be held.
