CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has reserved its orders on a writ petition to appoint an administrator to run the TN unit of the Medical Council of India (MCI) in Chennai and to conduct elections to it.
Justice M Duraiswamy reserved orders on a petition from T Sadagopan, a member of the council, on Tuesday.

According to petitioner’s senior counsel P Wilson, there were allegations of misuse of position against K Senthil, who was the president of the council. As Senthil allegedly indulged in acts detrimental to the functioning of the council, the other members convened an extraordinary meeting on May 2 and a majority of  members unanimously removed Senthil from the post of president and nominated P Balakrishnan in his place.

While so, the tenure of the council office-bearers came to an end on June 19. Hence, the present writ petition to appoint an administrator to carry out the day-to-day functions of the council.
