Health Minister, J.P. Nadda, Shares Stage With Disgraced Ketan Desai Who Is Still Awaiting Criminal Trial For Corruption – Where Is Modi’s Promise To Fight Corruption?

In yet another shocking display of how disgraced ex-MCI president, Dr. Ketan Desai, who was caught red-handed by the CBI for taking huge bribe from a private medical college (when Desai was still MCI president), is still holding a firm grip over the healthcare and medical education systems in India – it is reported by the Times of India (click the link: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/videos/Nadda-shares-stage-with-Ketan-Desai-sparks-row/videoshow/45662073.cms) that the sitting health minister of BJP government, J.P. Nadda, was seen sitting close to Dr. Desai during an open public ceremony last week.

It may be noted that Dr. Desai was released on bail by the CBI court in Patiala House in New Delhi in October, 2010 after spending seven months in jail but the criminal trial has been delayed for more than 7 years on one ground or another as Desai is continued to be glorified by his medical cronies in the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and also through his sinister connection with the leaders of the present government. Ironically, Desai’s medical registration was also suspended for indefinite period by the MCI in October, 2010 (after PBT lodged a formal complaint for “professional misconduct”) but despite that, unscrupulous political and medical leaders are still trying hard to bring criminally-indicted Desai back to the helm of Indian medicine.

    Planning for next MCI Election may be at center stage of this meeting as term of many members going to expire in the first week of Nov 2017 as per the Gazette Notification. No announcement for next election which should be within three years of expiry of term of MCI Members. Need for timely filing of PIL on this issue of immense public interest issue.

    Support Dr. Saha against corrupt Ketan Desai as I believe this fight against one of the most brutal form of corruption can only be won, if we all stand together for a common cause.

    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:
