World Medical Association (WMA) Refuses To Answer Questions On Selection of Tainted Dr. Ketan Desai As “President-elect” – Has Medical Corruption Crossed India’s Borders?

Disgraced ex-MCI president was caught red-handed by CBI for taking bribe from a private medical college in 2010. The criminal case against Desai is still pending in CBI court in Delhi as he remains free on bail. Despite his grossly tainted background, Indian Medical Association (IMA), largest medical lobby in India which is controlled by Desai and his cronies, successfully touted for Desai to make him president-elect for the World Medical Association (WMA) in 2014 with a blatantly false claim that all charges against Desai have been dropped by the Indian government.

PBT raised strong protest with WMA against Desai’s selection as “president-elect” based on false claim made by IMA and specifically wrote to present WMA president, Dr. Xavier Deau from France, as well as WMA Council chairperson, Dr. Ardis Hoven from USA, urging them to investigate and take immediate measures to remove Desai from his fraudulently claimed post of WMA president-elect. Several months have passed but top leaders of WMA have remained absolutely silent to the serious charges against their “president-elect” and criminally indicted Ketan Desai. Our repeated phone calls and faxes to WMA office have also fallen in deaf ears. We wonder why a large international medical body like WMA nominated the biggest medical mafia of Indian medicine as their future president. Has the wide-spread corruption in India’s healthcare system already reached far beyond the country’s borders?

      Honest doctors are a vanishing tribe as far as India is concerned. This is because they need not fear anyone. Crime no: 57/2009 Kollam H & H W 1 is a typical example. The charge is under I.P.C. 304 Part(II) as per the High Court of Kerala judgment no: 1903/14 dated 3/12/14 by Justice Kemal Pasha. I am the COURT WITNESS in this case as per High Court order 1394/13 dated 23/7/13 by Justice Bhavadasan. I feel it will come under I.P.C. 300(4) rather than I.P.C. 299(3).

    Corruption in medical education in India has engulfed all authorities responsible for enforcing law and quality of standards. Exploitation of medical teachers is at its peak, there is no body to listen to their voice. Society will definitely going to pay its price for allowing rampant corruption in medical education in India. MCI is openly flouting its own rules and regulations due to wasted interests. No authority is responding to complaints including Courts, Central government, state governments, MCI, UGC. Common man feeling frustrated in its attempt to expose corruption in medical education. Even RTI Orders for display of minutes of meetings and reports of MCI Inspections are not put on MCI website. Only some superpower can save from this scenario in India.

        PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, is an MBBS from India with post-graduate qualifications from USA. But Dr. Saha permanently resides in USA. You can contact PBT head office in Kolkata (numbers under “Contact us”) who will help and guide you to fight your case on medical negligence.

    when morals & ethics have dwindled in all societies, how can you one expect the Doctorrs to behave like angels ??

    Health Ministry under this present Governmnet is not taking any action against this corruption as PBT raised strong protest for a long time . it is very dangerous thing for the country. One day will come , the whole medical system in india will be corrupted if MCI and Govt. did take any action right now. The interns and junior doctors will be learning from this corruption that they will not be punished if they do something wrong in their profession. It is not good at all. The all medical doctors should come forward and raise their strong voice with PBT and fight against this corruption.

    We Indians have lost our “Moral, Values and Character” . These have become stories of the past.
    The Medical council of India, Indian Medical Association, Bar Associations, Engineers Bodies all are working as CLUBS and nothing else.
    The worst days are to come ahead, i fear.
    However, i feel that the country is at a turning point and people involved to protect their personal interest either may have to commit suicide or may be killed since they are digging their own grave.
