  1. I migrated to Delhi from Fatehabad during 1978. Then I found IMA bosses conferring with next door DDA topbrass at everyday cocktail dinners. The agenda was how to extract money from doctors. IMA bosses passed on tips and earned brokerage in return. A DDA Deputy Director graced my Nursing Home in car – IMA and DDA are conducting JOINT survey of Nursing Homes in residential colonies. SURVEY CONDUCTED BY DEPUTY DIRECTOR MOVING IN CAR.
    Four decades old IMA-DDA nexus has perpetrated in several forms :-
    1. You may find IMA certified services and products on TV and in market.
    2. Some builders offer IMA assoociated proposals to doctors. IMA East Delhi Branch President Dr Peeyush Jain\’s name is given for verification.
    3. Dr.Santanu Sen,NP and Dr. RV Asokan, HSG are in direct association with JIO.
    Thease rogues and some corrupt politicians have transformed Medical Profession into BUTCHERY.
    We can bury the past. My fellow doctors must unite to extradite Dr.Santanu Sen,NP and Dr.R.V.Asokan,HSG out of Indian Medical Association.
