IMA Plans Unlawful Medical Conference To Glorify Dr. Ketan Desai: PBT Urges Health Minister J.P. Nadda To Boycott Conference

In yet another shocking attempt to restore public image of the disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, Indian Medical Association (IMA) will be hosting 89th All India Medical Conference in Ahmedabad on 27th December, 2014 where Dr. Desai will be delivering the inaugural speech and the new central health minister, Mr. J.P. Nadda, would appear as the “chief guest” (see IMA announcement below).  This blatant move by IMA is not only unethical, it also violates prevailing medical laws in India.  Dr. Desai was caught red-handed by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for taking huge bribe from a private medical college in 2010 when he was still working as MCI president.  In response to PBT’s appeal, MCI also indefinitely suspended Dr. Desai’s license to practice medicine and barred him from “participating as a doctor in a medical conference anywherevide an order dated October 9, 2010.  Bringing Dr. Desai to inaugurate the national medical conference in Ahmedabad, IMA has clearly trampled over the direction passed by MCI in 2010.  But cronies of Dr. Desai are now occupying top positions in MCI as well as IMA. Little wonder that the same MCI which barred Desai from participating in any medical conference is now paving the way to bring him back to the helm of Indian medicine while he still waits for criminal trial to start.  The same IMA/MCI leaders also attempted to push Dr. Desai recently for the prestigious post of World Medical Association (WMA) president through fraudulent claim that all charges against Dr. Desai have been dropped and that his license to practice medicine has also been reinstated by MCI.  PBT has submitted an urgent appeal to the health minister today urging him not to attend the medical conference in Ahmedabad to send a strong signal against the growing menace of medical corruption.

    I just wonder that, we do not have any other eminent medical scholar other than Dr. Ketan Desai, who has been debarred by MCI and facing so many criminal case including rigging of MCI election. All this cases are still pending and courts found prima facie charges against Dr. Ketan Desai. This only suggests clearly there is backing by all politician and they also have links with Ketan Desai. Really disgusting. We thought Mr. Modi will do something to sort out all this issues and I doubt now that Modi is also having a big role along with Ketan Desai in all his scandal. Only GOD alone can save India.

    I completely agree with Seshardri R. I think those day are not away when Ketan Desai will be our Health Minister of India.
    GOD please save us from these corrupt politians.

    Interestingly Dr. K. K. Agarwal, brother- in- law of the current Atorney General of India Mr. Mukul Rohtagi, has been appointed as the Hony. Secretary General of IMA, which is tightly controlled by serial scamster Ketan Desai.

    Has the appointment of Agarwal been made so that Agarwal can use his personal relationship with the AG Rohtagi to dilute/ dismiss the criminal cases against Ketan which are under investigation/ pending trial, is a mute point which should be raised immediately.
