PBT Appeals To IMA For Removal Of Dr. Nirmal Maji, disgraced Trinomul MLA, From Contesting Election To Become IMA (Kolkata) President, Despite Ongoing Criminal Charges Under IPC Sec. 409 For Alleged Extortion Of Money For Personal Use From West Bengal Medical Council

PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, sent a letter to the national Indian Medical Association (IMA) president seeking his urgent intervention to remove Dr. Nirmal Maji, a disgraced MLA for Trinomul-Congress party who is also the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) president and involved with numerous scandals including attempt to perform a pet dog’s dialysis at the premier state SSKM Hospital in Kolkata endangering the lives of countless patients, from contesting the election next month for IMA Kolkata branch president. A nasty fight has erupted in the past few days in Kolkata between Dr. Maji and one Dr. Prasanta Bhattacharyya, both of whom are contesting for the same post and claimed themselves to be staunched TMC supporter.

Two separate criminal cases are ongoing in the Special Court for MPs/MLSs in Kolkata against Dr. Maji since 2018 including a case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 409 for criminal “breach of trust by a public servant” allegedly for extorting of funds from WBMC where Dr. Maji has remained as the president since 2011. In the appeal to IMA national president, PBT president has stated that electing a tainted doctor like Dr. Nirmal Maji would send wrong message to the public and undermine dignity of the entire medical profession in the eyes of the society (see Dr. Saha’s letter below).
