    HINDUTVA: TRANSLATING THEORETICAL PARADIGM INTO GUIDING PRINCIPLES
    Dr. Babu Suseelan
     
    There are several organizations around the globe and in India working enthusiastically that shows pride in Hindutva, a pride tempered with the reality to terms with a vastly expanding body of what we know, what we do not know and what we ought to know. This reality puts us assuredly in the family of Hindu organizations and leaders who are clearly aware of challenges we face and their many dimensions.
     
    The cataclysmic change is all around us. It is clear. The psycho-social-political changes and the changing context in India, and the political order are less clear. The psych-social-political change and the context demand us to continue our sacred past, and  Vedic knowledge. The urrent events in India demand that we  develop strategies and action plan in quality, sophistication, and interconnection and enhanced applicability.
     
    The present political-social and psychological context and the pitiful condition and predicament of Hindus remind me the old fairy tale about Little Red Riding Hood. One day, a young village girl puts on a red cap and hood, accepts some cake from her mother and sets off to see her sick grandmother. In the woods, she tells a friendly wolf about her plans for a visit. The wolf arrives first and eats the grandmother. Then, the wolf disguises himself in bed with a nightcap and sheets. Little Red Riding Hood arrives and asks her grandmother why her arms and legs and her ears, and her eyes, and teeth are so big. The wolf answers the last question with “better to eat you with”, jumps out of bed, and swallows Little Red Riding Hood. Later, a hunter hears the wolf’s snores, enters the house, and realizes that the wolf might have devoured the old woman. The hunter takes a knife and slices open the wolf’s belly. Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother came out safe and whole.
     
    Little Red Riding Hood was saved by the benevolent hunter. But Hindus in India are still in the belly of the beast.
    Let’s imagine that this story like many fairy tales, tells us something about Hindus, perhaps about jihadi terrorism coercive religious conversion, Marxist and Naxal menace, subversive activities, psychological warfare, discrimination against Hindus, mind viruses spread through our education, media and movies and corruption.  Jihadis, missionaries, indoctrinated intellectuals, academic zombies, phony secularists, spiritually malignant political leaders and misguided Universalists have offered different theoretical interpretations of the present problems faced by Hindus. Each theoretical perspective or language presents a distinctive vocabulary and offers a particular approach to assessment of Hindutva and intervention. All of these anti Hindu forces are unique in blaming the victims.
     
    Their mental misdirection, phony interpretations and bogus root cause theories will not help us to save Hindus from the belly of the beast. Hindus should not follow these programmed bumper sticker solutions. Hindus should wake up from their slumber and use their energy, intelligence and commitment to make a difference.
     
    Our task is very complicated. We have to enact many roles, the roles of advocate, teacher, researcher, policy analyst, social activist, mentor and more. Hindu leaders must possess multiple skills for micro, mezzo, and macro-level practice. We need to respond to Hindu problems: physical, psychological, social, economical, political and religious within India and around the Diasporas.  Unfortunately, the current pseudo secular set up allows our distracters to talk loud and prevail despite the dangerous premises of their position. They communicate like colonial masters, gangsters, and anti national politicians. They align themselves with our enemies in India and abroad signaling loyalty to their slave masters. They provoke conflict, crisis, turf wars, marginalize the majority Hindus and seek advancement by Balkanizing India.
     
    The problems Hindus face today have a complexity and, which necessitates high quality actions. Practical necessity justifies trespassing across boundaries and assertive actions including powerful intervention. Hindus must develop effective strategies to ameliorate problems created by our enemies to enhance the quality of our life and survival. We need to draw upon the intellectual and pragmatic traditions of our Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas.
     
    From Kanyakumari to Kashmir, from Manipur to Mumbai our enemies are deeply entrenched eating away our nation. Hindus have a set of significant symbols or shared meaning that allows Hindus to understand each other and work for our common cause. Hindus have a coherent collection of beliefs, aphorisms, theories and a world view that is unquestionably powerful. This truth must be preserved, and promoted for preserving our culture and the nation.
     
    Different anti Hindu paradigms and closed, destructive political dogmas such as phony secularism, Marxism, and desert originated religions battle for influence in India and they invariably cause many problems for Hindus. Indoctrinated, blind followers of such divisive, closed, dualistic dogmas act out without considering the evil effects of their actions. Adherents of such destructive ideologies lose the ability to question their faulty basic assumption and act like programmed zombies and criticize Hindutva and because of their bias and hatred become eternal enemies of our sacred culture and traditions. Destroy or deconstruct our sacred land is the prime goal of such programmed zombies and they behave at the behest of their slave masters in India and abroad.
     
    Why Hindus refuse to fight against the tyranny created by the bogus secular congress party, Marxists, Jihadis and missionary mafia? Why do we tolerate corruption and compromise with our slave masters and looters? The lack of assertive interventions to weed out enemies with evil intention is the result of a culture, philosophical tradition that ignored or scorned the concept of war against deviant, evil and dangerous enemies. The bogus secularists and universal misfits remained disdainful of policy and practices that is required to protect the country. As a result, we were invaded by Muslims, colonized by Christians, attacked by Chinese communists and lost our sacred land to the Chinese aggressors and Islamic terrorists. There were brave men like Chatrapathi Shivaji, Rani Jhansi, Subash Chandra Bose, Veer Sarvarkar, Bhagatsingh and Dr. Hedgawar. Since the general public became passive, indifferent, and apathetic Hindus could not maintain the fighting against Islamist and missionary mafia. Hindu ignorance of the brutal nature of Islam, deceptive psychological warfare of the missionaries did not allow Hindus to protect our wealth, preserve our freedom and promote our eternal philosophy. The evil effects of Islamic rule and Christian colonialism troubled Hindus, but they never did anything effectual against it.
     
    Why our spiritual organizations, social institutions and cultural establishments not naturally shifted to a creative Hindutva already? The big catch is that these organizations with thousands of followers look at the nation and the world through the lens of our habitual perception of reality. Whether they are consciously aware of it or not, they use ingrained, distorted explanation of reality to guide their followers. Their assumption “all religions are the same” are wrong. Their explanation of cause-and-effect view is irrational, and their denial of current political reality is abnormal. Such views make Hindus lethargic, submissive and make them believe that our life is a random event, strewn with chaos and discord. It leads towards more disorder, chaos and indifference.
     
    What we see around in India (corruption, deceptive and coercive religious conversion, discrimination of Hindus, Jihadi terrorism, bureau pathology, and nepotism) is a complicated, interconnected, pathological and it is going to get worse until Hindus are united, organized and assertively take appropriate, orderly explanation of reality to guide, and take assertive action.
     
    We are facing monumental challenges when current corrupt political scene does not correspond to a “goodness of fit” between what Hindus expect and what the political parties do. We are still conditioned by our constraints, belief in tolerance, compromise and acceptance of evil and enemies as part of our existence. Seeing India as dominated by enemy forces is the first step. And the life threatening scene needs to be changed and it will inevitably provide us insight, understanding to transform our future.
     
    Hindus in India and abroad can and should join together in transforming India and protect our Dharma   and culture for our present generation and for the next generation. Idly observing and tolerating the corrupt criminal politicians and phony secular rulers from the sidelines guarantee no salvation from our misery and tyranny.

      Baba Ramdev's today's comment to exclude PM and Chief Justice from Lokpal Perview

       

      Baba Ramdev's campaign against corruption has been supported by one and all, but
      his today's stand to exclude PM and Chief Justice from the perview of Lokpal is
      very disappointing. It seems baba Ramdev has started to play politics also. When
      top costitutional leaders of the government are corrupt and is allowing loot,
      how can the country get rid of corruption without including them in the Lokpal
      perview?
      Please comment on this news.

      Ramdev breaks ranks with Anna groupHimanshi Dhawan, Suchandana Gupta & Abantika
      GhoshHimanshi Dhawan, Suchandana Gupta & Abantika Ghosh, TNN | Jun 1, 2011,
      12.19am IST
      Read more:Ramdev|lokpal|Digvijay Singh|CBDT|Anna HazareNEW DELHI/BHOPAL: The
      rift in civil society is out in the open with yoga guru Baba Ramdev differing
      with the Anna Hazare group over bringing the prime minister and higher judiciary
      under the ambit of the Lokpal, the proposed anti-corruption ombudsman.

      Speaking at Sehore, 50 km from Bhopal, Ramdev seconded the position of the
      government that the PM and Chief Justice of India should be outside the ambit of
      the proposed Lokpal. "The post of PM and CJI are highly dignified and should not
      be under Lokpal. I don't know how appropriate it would be for running democracy
      if unnecessary attacks are made on these offices."

      The yoga guru's stand conflicted with the position taken by the Hazare group who
      had on Monday locked horns with the government over their demand to keep the PM
      within the jurisdiction of the Lokpal Bill, and can provide respite to UPA
      managers who had a torrid time dealing with civil society's agitation against
      corruption.

      Significantly, soon after Ramdev's statement echoing government's stand, Prime
      Minister Manmohan Singh publicly appealed to the yoga guru to give up his
      threatened fast to death from June 4 to bring black money stashed in foreign
      havens back to India. He promised swift and practical measures to bring
      offenders to book.

      The PM's appeal was the latest of a number of measures taken by the government
      to appease the yoga guru who had not long ago been attacked by Congress general
      secretary Digvijay Singh. The government has sent the CBDT chairman to hold
      talks with Ramdev, dubbed a spiritual entrepreneur by some and suspected to be a
      closet saffronite by others, on his demand to ban currency notes of higher
      denomination. There are also indications that finance minister Pranab Mukherjee
      may talk to him on this and demand for measures to bring black money back from
      abroad.

      The outreach to Ramdev comes when Anna Hazare group has threatened to walk out
      of the joint drafting committee on Lokpal, accusing the government of diluting
      its intent to have a bill passed in the monsoon session of Parliament expected
      to begin in the third week of July.

      While senior ministers P Chidambaram and Kapil Sibal denied the government was
      trying to wriggle out of its commitments, they did suggest the Hazare group's
      position on inclusion of the PM, judiciary and actions of MPs in Parliament
      needed more debate and wider consensus.

      With the group pressing for the Central Vigilance Commission and Central Bureau
      of Investigation to be also subservient to the Lokpal, government indicated that
      such a "super body" was unlikely to pass muster with the political class. Any
      bill will have to go through Parliament, government warned.

      Faced with questions from reporters whether a split in civil society ranks
      helped its cause, home minister P Chidambaram dismissed suggestions that such a
      divide was being engineered as an uncharitable remark. "I think this is the most
      unkind comment and the least I can say is that it is very, very uncharitable,"
      he said. He added that former chief justices like Justices J S Verma and M N
      Venkatachaliah also were of the view that higher judiciary should not be
      included in the proposed legislation.

      But the home minister did stress on divergence in views among civil society
      members. On more than one occasion, Chidambaram said there was no unanimity on
      the contentious issues between "civil society, intellectuals, authors'' and
      others as well. All this meant the Hazare group may not have the last word on
      the bill.

      In case Congress wishes to drive a wedge in the civil society camp, it may be
      helped by rivalry between Ramdev and supporters of Hazare. The Hazare campaign
      has tried to keep a distance from Ramdev largely because of the suspicion of his
      pro-RSS inclinations. For his part, the yoga guru had some time ago called
      Hazare as a leader of Maharashtra, suggesting his own all-India appeal. He also
      criticized the nomination of father–son lawyer duo of Shanti Bhushan and
      Prashant Bhushan as an instance of nepotism.

      The Ramdev camp, which was the first to raise the pitch on black money, has been
      smarting under the feeling that Hazare's group upstaged them by launching the
      fast at Jantar Mantar and by pushing the government on the defensive.

      "We were on this yatra on corruption since last year and were caught completely
      unawares by Anna's sudden announcement of the fast on April 5 which clashed with
      Ramnavmi and Baba's Diksha Diwas," said Ramdev's spokesperson S K Tijarawala.

      He also said the Hazare camp did not accommodate other sections of civil society
      in the joint panel. Nor did it object when Congress monopolized the remaining
      positions, excluding not just the Opposition but even allies.

      The manoeuvres to mollify Ramdev and to build him up in relation to Hazare
      campaign also shows that the government, which had looked at its wit's end after
      Hazare's ambush, is now beginning to get its act together. It has also decided
      to tap into the anxieties of the political class over the anti-graft activism of
      civil society, deciding to run by its "no" by other political parties.

      Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee on Monday wrote to chief ministers and
      political parties seeking their comments on Hazare campaign's demand to put PM
      and the conduct of MPs inside the Parliament within Lokpal's jurisdiction. Given
      the aversion of chief ministers of all stripes to submit themselves to
      state-level ombudsman, the Lokayukta, and universal insistence on keeping
      Parliament's proceedings off limits for outside scrutiny, the replies can only
      be expected to strengthen government's bargaining position.

          Scientific Research in Policing

           

          Evidence Based Policing

           

          Presently I am coming in regular contact with a person who can easily be called an eminent police academician. He is Prof Lawrence Sherman, presently at Institute for Criminology, University of Cambridge, UK.

           

          He talks of Evidence Based policing day and night. That is his passion, which is his professionals well. For those of you who are not very conversant with this concept, what it fundamentally means is that the rigours of scientific research methods and methodologies shall be sincerely and diligently applied to each and every aspect of policing to a much larger extent and in a much deeper manner. He insists that these scientific research methods shall be extended to as many subjects and to as specific regional units as possible. Thus if a research has been carried out on Community Policing in Manchester, it shall not be taken to apply naturally to Delhi or Darjeeling.

           

          Initially when I heard these words, I was not exactly impressed but the more I think of it, the more I realize that there is much merit and sense in what he is saying.

           

          For the following reasons, we need to initiate, incorporate and put forth scientific methods of research modalities in policing (call it by EVP or whatever other name)-

          1.       It gives an exactness and depth to our believing and gut feeling

          2.       Many a times, it also controverts our thinking held for long

          3.       It helps formulate many new concepts and helps us check whether we are on right path

          4.       It helps us evolve in the right direction and also to discard those methods which are not being proving useful, as per the indications of the results of these scientific research works

          5.       It gives a kind of respectability and acceptability to what a person(s) have been saying

          6.       It assists us in pursuing our point of view across the table when dealing with policy makers etc

          7.       It shows our seriousness and concern about finer aspects of policing and sends positive waves around

           

          Having thought over these issues presented above, I as a self-proclaimed critic of Prof Sherman have now become extremely thankful to him for having initiated me into going for and relying upon rigorous scientific methods of research even in policing.

           

          Similarly, another person I would like to personally mention whose work I initially thought as being of no importance but later thoughts let me understand of my impetuousness in this regards is Ms Nina Singh, the IGP from Rajasthan.

           

          I came through the Rajasthan experiment which as per her own version is “an attempt to overcome the challenges of police reforms in the Indian state of Rajasthan, evaluated through a series of RCT (Randomized control Trials). Four reforms interventions were implemented in a randomly selected group of 162 police stations across 11 districts of Rajasthan-
          1.  weekly duty rosters with a guaranteed rotating day off

          2. a freeze on transfer of police staff

          3. in-service training to update skills

          4. placing community observers in the police stations”

           

          I particularly thought that all these four reforms had very obvious answers and there was no need to have any kind of experimentation with them of any kind, less so the sophisticated RCT.

          Yet, for the reasons stated before I would again reiterate that instead of being skeptic and critical, a person like me and the rest of us shall be extremely thankful to Ms Nina Singh and the group for having ventured us in this new realm, hitherto generally unknown to Indian Police.

           

          Yes, I must say that great service has been done by Sri A S Gill, the ex DGP of Rajasthan (under whom Ms Singh and her team worked and yielded wonderful results) to Indian Police by having initiated and formulized this entire process whereby RCT was put on actual ground for the first time possibly in Indian Police, that too at such a large scale. Thus, the concepts of Randomized Controlled Trials, scientific experimentations and rigorous research methods are slowly coming in a big way in Indian Police.

           

          In fact, we need more and more of these in India, so that Indian politicians and Indian public takes us much more seriously.

            Indian Police vs New York Police

             

            Indian Police vs New York police

             

            Each one of us must have had many experiences when suddenly something they had been thinking very high of turns out to be a big disappointment, at least in his/her perspective.

             

            The same happened to me when I actually came to know about the “Bratton experiment” in policing. Mr  Bill Bratton was the Police Commissioner of NYPD (New York Police Department) during the Mayoral term of Mr Rudd Giuliani who is credited with having transformed the NYPD and for having controlled the crime in NY as never before, so as to having given it the perception of a crime-controlled place from being a completely lawless one.

             

            The principle method adopted by him has been fancifully termed as Compstat. Here what Mr Bratton did was to call his police officers Precinct-wise (some kind of fundamental territorial jurisdiction which in our case is that of district, Sub division, Police station etc) and to discuss with them crime thread-bare, analyzing crime, asking for feedback and grilling the officers for their lapses, In a way it was for the purpose of instilling a sense of responsibility and accountability in his officers. What he did was to use rather aggressive language and tenor for his Compstat meetings and this had a great effect on the subordinate police officers, making them shiver in their pants and forcing them to yield wonderful results. All this was in the year 1993.

             

            So far so good. But the real questions that arise out of this are-

            1.       If Mr Bratton did this (or sort of invented this in 1993), what exactly had his predecessors been doing so far?

            2.       If Mr Bratton is being praised and respected for his aggressiveness, what would one say about some of our own police officers who have been known to have used even abusive languages in derogatory and fear-instilling (and at times comical also) manner with the subordinate police officers?

            3.       Is the concept of accountability and responsiveness not the basic requirement of any kind of Police management?

            4.       Have not each of us done the same (in different measures and with different levels of success) in districts as Monthly Crime Meetings, as DIG/IG as Range Meetings and DGs as State level meetings?

             

            This is one example (whose great fancifulness and supposed glory in the Western world policing organizations) makes me think that there are many things which Indian Police is doing in fantastic manners. Possibly what we lack the art of presentation of our work and the kind of documentation that the foreign police organizations go for.

             

            Thus, what we learn from the Bratton experiment are-

            1.       All that glitters is not gold

            2.       Indian police also has so many things to showcase but we are possibly not doing it properly

            3.       Indian police needs to learn a lot about documentation and their proper presentation before common people

              IPS Officers then and now

               

              Friends,

               

              Today I had an opportunity to meet a person who has been coming to India to study its Police and policing system since 1965, three years before I was born.

              Professor David Bayley from USA has a wide range of experiences of Indian Police, more so with the officers of the Indian Police Service.


              He is of the opinion that Indian Police Service is one of the best Police services of the world and is of its own kind, which is rare to see anywhere else. He believes that some of the best students have been coming to the service since 1960s and the trend continues to remain so.


              But there is one aspect he particularly feels concerned about. He thinks that while he talked to IPS officers of 1960s, they had a sense of power and authority in them which they felt they could use for public good. They all had a feeling that they had a control over their destiny and their course of future career through the great tradition they were part of.


              On the other hand, he feels that the present generation IPS officers have much more despair and helplessness in them. He feels that these IPS officers have a visible sense of lack of authority and position. Prof Bayley feels that today’s IPS officers often feel they are being persecuted for none of their faults and will generally not be able to deliver results they feel so strongly about.


              As an optimist he feels that the officers of the IPS will “come together as a fraternity and will face this situation in togetherness.”.


              Is this a subtle hint towards some deep malaise deep down in the fraternity?

                Indian Police vs New York Police is just like indian public Vs New York Police

                Indian Police vs New York police

                 

                Each one of us must have had many experiences when suddenly something they had been thinking very high of turns out to be a big disappointment, at least in his/her perspective.

                 

                The same happened to me when I actually came to know about the “Bratton experiment” in policing. Mr  Bill Bratton was the Police Commissioner of NYPD (New York Police Department) during the Mayoral term of Mr Rudd Giuliani who is credited with having transformed the NYPD and for having controlled the crime in NY as never before, so as to having given it the perception of a crime-controlled place from being a completely lawless one.

                 

                The principle method adopted by him has been fancifully termed as Compstat. Here what Mr Bratton did was to call his police officers Precinct-wise (some kind of fundamental territorial jurisdiction which in our case is that of district, Sub division, Police station etc) and to discuss with them crime thread-bare, analyzing crime, asking for feedback and grilling the officers for their lapses, In a way it was for the purpose of instilling a sense of responsibility and accountability in his officers. What he did was to use rather aggressive language and tenor for his Compstat meetings and this had a great effect on the subordinate police officers, making them shiver in their pants and forcing them to yield wonderful results. All this was in the year 1993.

                 

                So far so good. But the real questions that arise out of this are-

                1.       If Mr Bratton did this (or sort of invented this in 1993), what exactly had his predecessors been doing so far?

                2.       If Mr Bratton is being praised and respected for his aggressiveness, what would one say about some of our own police officers who have been known to have used even abusive languages in derogatory and fear-instilling (and at times comical also) manner with the subordinate police officers?

                3.       Is the concept of accountability and responsiveness not the basic requirement of any kind of Police management?

                4.       Have not each of us done the same (in different measures and with different levels of success) in districts as Monthly Crime Meetings, as DIG/IG as Range Meetings and DGs as State level meetings?

                 

                This is one example (whose great fancifulness and supposed glory in the Western world policing organizations) makes me think that there are many things which Indian Police is doing in fantastic manners. Possibly what we lack the art of presentation of our work and the kind of documentation that the foreign police organizations go for.

                 

                Thus, what we learn from the Bratton experiment are-

                1.       All that glitters is not gold

                2.       Indian police also has so many things to showcase but we are possibly not doing it properly

                3.       Indian police needs to learn a lot about documentation and their proper presentation before common people

                    Over 1,100 Children Used As Guinea Pigs, Reveals RTI Query

                     

                    Indore docs flout clinical trial norms, earn lakhs
                    Over 1,100 Children Used As Guinea Pigs, Reveals RTI Query
                    Rema Nagarajan TIG

                        Nearly 40 doctors and 18 hospitals in Indore, from both the government and
                    the private sector, are being investigated for malpractices in clinical trials
                    conducted by them. This follows shocking revelations of the details of some of
                    these medical trials.

                        For instance, over 1,100 children have been used in clinical trials from
                    which doctors in a leading government medical college earned lakhs of rupees. In
                    one shocking case, out of the nine subjects of a trial on the possible use of
                    the drug tadalafil in pulmonary hypertension (otherwise used for male erectile
                    dysfunction), seven were women and one was a 17-yearold boy, all from poor
                    families.

                        Replying to an RTI application filed by health activists, the Madhya Pradesh
                    legislative assembly gave details of clinical trials conducted by various
                    doctors in MGM Medical College and associated M Y Hospital amounting to lakhs of
                    rupees in the period 2005-10. Dr Hemant Jain of paediatrics made Rs 56 lakh, Dr
                    Anil Bharani of cardiology made Rs 44 lakh, Dr Apoorva Pauranik of neurology
                    made Rs 42 lakh, Dr Ashok Bajpai of medicine made Rs 41.37 lakh and Dr Salil
                    Bhargava of chest and TB made Rs 40.19 lakh. In comparison, the take-home salary
                    of the senior most professor at MGM Medical College is Rs 75,000. Clearly, the
                    clinical trials are the dominant source of income for these doctors.

                        According to an editorial in the latest issue of the Monthly Index of
                    Medical Specialties (MIMS), during 2005-10, of the 2,365 patients enrolled for
                    clinical trials in five medical colleges in Madhya Pradesh, just six doctors in
                    MGM Medical College and associated M Y Hospital recruited 1,521 patients, the
                    bulk of them — 1,170 — were children.

                        Even though all the patients were recruited through the medical college,
                    which was the trial site, and the facilities of the hospital were used to
                    conduct investigations on the trial participants, the college got nothing from
                    the lakhs earned through these trials as the doctors received all the money in
                    their personal accounts. In an RTI reply this month, the college authorities
                    admitted that the college had not earned any money from clinical trials in the
                    last five years.

                        A clinical trial agreement between Dr Pushpa Varma, professor of
                    ophthalmology, and a clinical research organization, Quintiles Research (India)
                    Private Ltd, for a pharma company called Alcon gives an idea of how the money is
                    diverted. In the agreement, the payment was to be made to “Dr Pushpa Varma, MGM
                    Medical College and M Y Hospital, 61 Juni Kasera Bakhal, Indore-452001”, which
                    is her private address and not that of the college and she gave her own PAN
                    number, so that all the money was credited to her account. Dr Varma was paid Rs
                    26,000 per patient enrolled in the trial to test the eyedrop moxifloxacin of
                    Alcon. With 35 patients, she pocketed a cool Rs 9 lakh.

                        “In the case of 15 clinical trials, instead of obtaining permission from the
                    on-site ethics committee of the medical college, permission has been obtained
                    from strange non-verifiable entities claiming to be ethics committees located
                    thousands of kilometers away in Pune or Ahmedabad,” pointed out MIMS editor Dr C
                    M Gulati.

                        After the issue of clinical trials was raised in the assembly last year, two
                    committees were constituted, one by the secretary of medical education and
                    another by the health department headed by chief medical and health officer Dr
                    Sharad Pandit. While the medical education committee is yet to submit its
                    report, Dr Pandit has submitted a preliminary report which has raised concerns
                    about ethics committees being constituted against norms. Dr Pandit’s committee
                    noted how a trial located in the medical college got approval from the ethics
                    committee of a private hospital and other such irregularities. The final report
                    of the CMHO’s five-member committee is expected within a week.

                        Members of Swasthya Adhikar Manch, a network of NGOs who had filed several
                    RTI applications to expose the manner in which clinical trials were being
                    conducted, have expressed concern over the lack of any government action. “The
                    issue was raised last year. The accused doctors continue to hold their
                    positions. They can easily influence the poor patients who they enrolled for the
                    trials and manipulate documents. They should have been transferred to ensure
                    free and fair probe,” said Amulya Nidhi, one of the members of the Manch.

                        The medical superintendent of M Y Hospital Dr Salil Bhargava and former dean
                    of MGM medical college Dr M K Saraswat when contacted refused to comment saying
                    that the matter was before the state assembly.
