Britain's highest court on Thursday held a day-long hearing in the case of thousands of Indian doctors rendered jobless after the government abruptly changed the rule to give preference to European physicians in the state-run health service and its verdict is expected in the next few weeks.
"We have a very strong case and we are hopeful that the result will be in our favour," Dr Ramesh Mehta, President of the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) told PTI after attending the case in the House of Lords.
"Having heard the arguments of the Department of the Health Counsel, we feel their arguments were so weak they are wasting our time and causing more confusion among the international medical graduates as well as employing hospitals.
"Our case was presented brilliantly by Rabinder Singh, QC," Mehta said.
