On October 9, 2015, Delhi High Court division bench headed by the chief justice announced that an order will be passed on November 2, 2015 as to whether the writ petition (PIL) filed by PBT against the wrongful act by several MCI and IMA leaders to promote disgraced ex-MCI chief, Dr. Ketan Desai, as the WMA president in order to restore his tainted public image and to reinstate him at the helm of Indian medicine. But on November 2 when this matter came up for hearing, division bench abruptly declared that the case is adjourned till January 6, 2016. This PIL was initially filed before the Supreme Court but hearing Mr. M.N. Krishnamani, senior advocate representing PBT, the Apex Court directed that the remedy sought by PBT should be prayed before the appropriate high court. It is noteworthy that the primary allegation in this PIL is against the top MCI/IMA leaders including Dr. Ajay Kumar, present chairman of MCI “Grievance Committee”, who went before WMA and lied that all cases against Dr. Desai have been dropped by the Indian authority based on which Desai was reinstated as the WMA president-elect for 2016.
