Dr. K.K. Aggarwal, Brother-in-law of Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi and Strong Defender of Ketan Desai Becomes Indian Medical Association (IMA) President

Dr. K.K. Aggarwal, a Delhi-based doctor and long-time supporter of the disgraced ex-MCI chief, Dr. Ketan Desai,has been elected to head the largest lobby for Indian doctors (IMA) for 2016-2017. Dr. Aggarwal has been an inside player and highly controversial figure in Indian medicine as he has been closely associated with tainted Dr. Ketan Desai for a very long time. Even after Desai was arrested for alleged bribery by the CBI and removed from the MCI in 2010, Dr. Aggarwal and a few other old medical friends of Dr. Desai including Dr. Ajay Kumar, Dr. Vinay Aggarwal and Dr. Sudipto Roy, have been deeply involved in defending and promoting Dr. Desai as he remain free on bail awaiting criminal trial to begin in the CBI court in Delhi.

Most recently, PBT lodged a formal complaint with the Supreme Court appointed MCI “Oversight Committee” against these four top IMA leaders including Dr. Aggarwal for helping Dr. Desai to regain the post of World Medical Association (WMA) president as they lied before the world medical body that Dr. Desai has been exonerated from all charges by the Indian authority (CBI) based on which Desai was reinstated as WMA president. Even the MCI Central Vigilance Officer (CVO) upheld PBT’s allegations against the senior doctors and asked MCI president to take appropriate disciplinary action against them. But MCI president has remained absolutely silent and refused to take any disciplinary action against any of these Desai defenders.

Ironically, Dr. Aggarwal, as he has openly boasted on his web page, is also the brother-in-law of Mr. Mukul Rohatgi, Attorney General of India. With this close nexus and direct family ties between the top legal man for the Indian government and the top medical man of IMA, we are anxious whether victims of medical negligence and healthcare corruption will be facing even stiffer challenges in their quest for justice. We are also concerned because there is an obvious appearance of a conflict of interest for proper prosecution of Dr. Desai, the biggest mafia of Indian medicine, by the CBI advocates who are under control of the Attorney General.

    WHO or some trusthworthy international health organization should open a vigilance unit in India for treating corruption in our country as a cancerous epidemic, Only then canl other infectious diseases like chikungunya and dengue be treated.
    The international Cabal/Freemasonic crime syndicate allegedly has a very strong presence in the medical/health industry throughout the world. Nazis, including Nazi doctors fled to South America (and elsewhere), especially Argentina. Vedanta funds all major political parties. Makes sense?

    Make this information public i.e. the medical nexus. Mukul Rohatgi himself has MANY conflicts of interest.

    Talking about conflict of interest, U.S. A.’s racist presidential candidate, Donald Trump, owns property in Gurgaon and Pune. He is said to be close to several Indian politicians, including from BJP and Congress. Take a look at the list of MLAs and MPs from Gurgaon and Pune.

    There is nothing to fear. We stand on firm footing- TRUTH. Our long allegations with concrete evidences have not been controverted till date. So, silence is acceptance. Surprisingly, simple truth has also to be proved in the Court proceedings where Indian Courts are always overburdened for reasons widely known. The concerned Executive wing is also not taking action on the ground that Court would solve the problems. So, this is the opportunity the IMA has been taking to their advantage. However, Truth has a wonderful way of creeping out and it would come out very soon if we pursue our goal with dogged determination to unveil the truth.

    Dr. K. K Aggarwal was an invited member of the Ethics Committee of MCI to which i had appealed to revoke the licence of Dr. Atul Chhabra of Tata Hospital, Jamshedpur whose gross, reckless and criminal negligence led to the death of my younger brother. Dr. Aggarwal was the only cardiologist in the committee of doctors and he had to give his opinion on a highly irregular ECG that was grossly mis-interpreted by Dr. Chhabra. The final decision of MCI was just a warning with no comments on the ECG or any other medical aspects of the case. It was not a ‘ speaking order’. Any comment on the presenting symptoms, line of treatment including ECG would have made the decision of warning appear like a ‘ joke’. I challenged the decision and MCI allowed a review. The review decision is a speaking order which found Dr. Chhabra guilty of cognizable negligence on seven counts including ECG and Ethics Committee recommended suspension of licence for 6 months. If such a man becomes the President of the highest medical association of the country , even GOD cannot save this country.

    President of the Congress Party, Sonia Gandhi, travels all the way to US of A for medical treatment, or else gets a surgeon from Mumbai to fly all the way to Delhi to operate on her broken shoulder. At the Indian tax payer’s expense.

    Arvind Kejriwal, leader of the ‘Aam’ Admi Party and Chief Minister of Delhi, goes all the way to Bengaluru for regular medical treatment for himself and family, and for a surgery. At the Indian tax payers’ expense. Strange that Kejriwal should choose not to have the surgery done in the NCR, considering India’s medical sector is filled with his own fellow community members from top to bottom.

    Only goes to prove that ‘the best of’ hospitals/hospital staff and diagnostic labs in the NCR are unsafe.

    The editorial in today’s Times of India entitled ‘A Self Selecting Elite’ by Ashok Malik explains what a cosy, supportive relationship all members of India’s judiciary enjoy with each other. They seem to live by the maxim, ‘You scratch my back; I scratch yours and may the devil get all the others’.

    This is sad news. Nevertheless I believe with PBT exposing this nexus and the greed of these Doctor’s themselves will break this nexus.

    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:
