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.
