MCI Passed a Motion to “Congratulate” Corrupt and Criminally-indicted Dr. Ketan Desai

All members of the Medical Council of India (MCI) unanimously passed a motion during their last General Body (GB) meeting (just posted on MCI website) specifically to congratulate the disgraced Dr. Ketan Desai who is still free on bail waiting for his criminal trial on charges bribery and corruption after he was arrested by the CBI in 2010. As can be seen on page 7 of the minutes of this GB meeting:

“Dr.Ved Prakash Mishra moved an informal congratulatory resolution on the achievement of the highest position of World Medical Association by Former President of Medical Council of India, Dr.Ketan Desai and the whole house seconded and extended their committed heartfelt congratulations to Dr.Desai. A congratulatory letter be sent to Dr.Desai on behalf of MCI in this regard.”

While the entire country and even the international medical community are well aware about the corrupt nature of Dr. Ketan Desai, as recently held in an editorial published in the prestigious international “British Medical Journal” (BMJ), there can be little doubt that the doctor-leaders who are running the healthcare and medical education system in MCI are nothing but cronies of this disgraced ex-MCI chief, Dr. Ketan Desai. Unfortunately, the ultimate price of this wide-spread medical corruption will be paid by the defenseless patients across India.

    MCI (Medical Council Of India) should be renamed to MMI (Medical Mafia Of India). Just like a Mafia these guys seem to operate together and cover up each others crime. A shame on humanity!

    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:

      We’re living in a mafia state. Please read my comments below on AGI Mukul Rohatgi, which will give you some idea of the mafia nexuses across sectors of activity.

    AGI Mukul Rohatgi, brother-in-law of Dr KK Aggarwal (President of the pro-doctor/anti-patient Indian Medical Association, and fierce lobbyist for Ketan Desai) quits today.

    According to the quotes in Dhananjay Mahapatra’s article AG Rohatgi Opts Out of Extension in the paper version of TOI dated 12.06.17, the Attorney General of India says he ‘did his best to protect the interest of the country and the government’ and ‘he would accept any special task given to (him) by the NDA government like to represent India in world forums on human rights or economic issues.’
    What we have is an Attorney General of India who is son of former Delhi High Court judge Justice Awadh Behari Rohatgi; he is also said to be a very close associate of Arun Jaitley Union Minister for Finance, and to former AGI Vahanvati; the Attorney General of India is long-time Defense Counsel for mafia dons like Unitech bosses (and other 2G scam-accused) who together have succeeded in draining the country of its economic resources and robbing its citizens of their fundamental/human rights. The fact that AGI Mukul Rohatgi is brother-in-law of Dr KK Aggarwal (President of the pro-doctor/anti-patient Indian Medical Association, and fierce lobbyist for Ketan Desai, former head of Medical Council of India, accused of massive corruption) is also sheer coincidence, I suppose.
    This same Attorney General of India with multiple conflicts of interest is reported to be in London at present (financial capital of the world). Interesting. Out of sheer curiosity, did he submit his Aadhaar/Biometrics Card number for purchasing his air ticket?!
