Ketan Desai In MCI Again? PBT Raises Strong Protest, Threatens To Move The Court

It is learned from reliable sources that Medical Council of India (MCI) is all set to reinstate disgraced ex-MCI supremo Dr. Ketan Desai as a regular member of MCI. Dr. Desai is presently free on bail facing serious criminal charges for bribery and corruption. More importantly, Dr. Desai medical registration to practice medicine or be part of any medical council has remained suspended since 2010 after PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, lodged a formal complaint against Desai for violation of MCI Code of Ethics & Regulations. Despite these indisputable evidences against the most notorious doctor in India, Dr. Desai managed to get himself nominated as MCI member from Gujarat University. Almost all top leaders of the present MCI are well-known cronies of Dr. Desai. Supreme Court of India issued notice against MCI and Desai last November after PBT filed a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking CBI investigation of the last MCI election which was allegedly rigged by Desai and his cronies. Unfortunately, despite a grossly tainted public image, Desai has strong backing from BJP, Congress and other major political parties except AAP. In order to stop Desai from being MCI member, PBT has sent a memorandum to MCI president, Dr. Jayshreeben Mehta, urging her not to allow Desai in MCI as this would send a strong negative signal to the honest doctors and ordinary people of India. PBT has also stated that they will move the court if Desai manages to become a member of MCI.

    Without strong support from the Government ( past and present) , Dr. Desai
    can not go in the next level. Dr. Ketan Desai is the only one medical doctor in the vast Indian Medical fields . Without Dr. Desai , the indian medical Community will die as BJP Government thinks. Dr. Desai is a corrupted doctor , inspite of that Govenment did not take any action against him. it is very surprised . Thanks to Dr. Kunal Saha for fighting this case for a long time. Every honest doctor from the Medical Community should come forward and join with PBT and fight together against this corruption.

    Dr Desai can even become the Health Minister, as he is having such a strong support from all parties and no party will oppose even if he become HM. Dr. Desai is the supreme doctor in the vast Indian Medical field.

    Unless and until all other eminent doctors in the Indian community wake up and join with Kunal Saha, nothing will change.

    In spite of all corruption cases against Mr. Desai and most of the eminent doctors know about this corruption and they are not stepping out to fight for the better health care system. Until all the practicing doctors in India come out and fight for the cause, it may not be possible to expect any drastic change in the system.
