PBT Calls All Citizens and Victims of “Medical Negligence” to Join Massive Public Protest Rally in Kolkata On December 29 (Thursday) In Demand of Justice

PBT is planning to organize a massive public rally in central Kolkata on Thursday (December 29, 2016) demanding expedited justice for the victims of medical negligence and cleansing of the medical councils that have been riddled with corruption. Despite frequent reports of death of innocent patients from reckless treatment and wide-spread healthcare corruption appearing in the news on a regular basis, hardly any doctor is found guilty by the medical regulatory authorities. Legal proceedings for compensation against the errant doctors are also languishing in the consumer courts for years and decades because large number of consumer complaints against trivial defective commercial products are stacked together with serious cases of death from alleged medical negligence. PBT plans to raise these important issues that are crippling the medical system through peaceful public protest rally starting at 1 pm from Esplanade (Y-Channel) on December 29 2016. All victims of medical negligence and conscientious citizens are invited to join this public rally to make our voice heard for a better healthcare delivery system in the future. PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, will also join this public rally coming from USA. Please contact PBT head office at 9143650171/9831983670/9836706952 for more information.

    It is very good news that PBT is going to organize the public rally against the medical corruption in India. From our heart , we are supporting this rally. I wish to join but we could not as because we are not in Calcutta / India now. Thanks to Dr. Saha and PBT.

    All the best! I completely support this rally!

    My family is also a victim of medical negligence. I’ve started the petition “Medical Council of India, Lilavati Hospital: Cancel License, expel Corrupt Nephrologist

    Hemant Mehta, Prashant Rajput who killed my Mom” and need your help to get it off the ground.

    Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now. Here’s the link:

      To Parag : I can empathise with you Parag. Medical negligence is most difficult to establish in india but if you feel you have a good case, maybe proceeding legally would be a good option. It will be tough but your efforts will make a difference for you and everyone else in similar situations. Just my opinion.

    Dear sir,
    I want to file a case against a doctor of Chandannagar as I had to lose my daughter due to his wrong treatment.Before doing so I like to consult you for your kind help.
    Thanks
    Dr Manik Chandra Khan.

    Dr. Saha and team

    Your efforts, courage and perseverance are praiseworthy. As someone who is fighting a battle against a major hospital chain where the well-experienced lawyers of the other side are using all means to delay – if not deny – justice , I know what unfortunate sufferers go through – first via hands of a greedy/ lack-a-daisical medical establishment and next via a judicial system that seems to exist only to sustain itself. I have been in touch with Shishir and he knows a bit of my case.

    I wish you the best and shall be applying for a membership with PBT shortly. If I can be of any help I’d be very willing to – I am in Greater Noida.

    I wish you all the best for the rally today, Even better if the rally had been an all-India one.

    Cent percent support for the rally and best wishes.
    Hope the same could have been carried in Ahmedabad.

    Would appreciate if anyone could help me fight against this to get justice for my father .
