PBT Holds Public Rally In Demand Of Speedy Justice And Action Against Corruption In Medical Council

Scores of victims of alleged medical negligence gathered in front of RSV Hospital, a prominent city hospital in Tollygaunge, Kolkata yesterday under PBT’s banner and demanded speedy justice in all pending complaints of against doctors/hospitals. Heart-rending stories of gross medical negligence and death of near and dear ones were narrated by many victim’s friends and families. People raised demand for timely justice in cases involving alleged “medical negligence” in consumer courts through a separate fast-track court. Many victims expressed their dismay with the functioning of the state medical council that has been riddled with wide-spread corruption primarily working to shield the errant doctors without any care for the hapless victims of medical negligence. PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, was also present at this public rally and demanded that corrupt medical council members must be held accountable and replaced by honest doctors if there is any hope to restore public trust on our healers (see rally picture below with Dr. Saha).

    Speedy Justice in time framed prescribed under the COPRA, 1986 is statutory right of every consumer of healthcare service. Govt. is duty bound to deliver it at all costs.

    Great work! When we all come together in large groups, it puts pressure on these “thieves” disguised as Doctors! Else with no inherent morality, there is no limit of medical negligence and corruption that these rotten Doctor’s would stop at.

    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:
