Delhi: Dental Council meet begins amid graft allegations

New Delhi: The Dental Council of India is holding its general body meeting in the national capital on Saturday amidst allegations of large scale corruption. The meeting comes weeks after Chairman of Tamil Nadu Dental Council Dr Gunaseelan was sacked for accepting bribes from private dental colleges.

Several questions have also been raised against the present Dental Council Chairman for being unable to control the erring members.

The meeting comes even as Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad washed his hands off the entire controversy saying that the council was an autnomous body.
