Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal had to step in to prevent an implosion in the party over Yogendra Yadav. PTI

Senior advocate and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader H S Phoolka today lashed out at Yogendra Yadav, accusing him working for his defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.

Phoolka said, he even contemplated to quit from the party, but was persuaded by Arvind Kejriwal to continue.

He alleged that Yadav saw him as a threat in the party as far as Punjab was concerned and did not allow him to speak to the press or canvass for the party during the last Lok Sabha polls.

“I had almost decided to quit the party before Lok Sabha elections in February 2014, because Yogendra Yadav had directed me not to go to Punjab and not to speak to the press. For over a month I was made to sit idle. I think Yadav wanted total control over the party in Punjab and envisaged me as a threat.

“I sent SMS to Kejriwal that I am disillusioned. Kejriwal persuaded me to continue. When Sanjay Singh announced my ticket from Ludhiana, Yogendra Yadav was furious. Yadav constituted a campaign committee for Punjab, most of whom worked against me during elections to ensure that I do not win,” Phoolka said on his post on Facebook.

He also demanded the issue to be raised at the National Executive tomorrow.

“But now it is necessary that National Executive should ask Yogendra Yadav to explain why I was stopped from canvassing in Punjab,” Phoolka said.

He said that from January to February 2014 there was no major party activity in the state and crucial time was wasted.

“I had known Yogendra Yadav since long and had good cordial relations with him. There were never any differences between us so I was shocked when he did this to me. He wanted his control even at the cost of party’s interest.

“From mid January to mid February 2014 there was no major party activity in Punjab and this crucial month before elections was wasted,” Phoolka said.

    How Indian Doctors Loot Patients. Dr. B.M. Hegde has written two books: 'What doctors do not study in Medical colleges' Now he is bold to reveal all these. We already know some of these practices but coming from a medical pracioner himself, it shows how widespread this is: This mail is from Dr. B M Hegde. How Indian Doctors Loot Patients. Most of these observations are either completely or partially true. Corruption has many names, and one of civil society isn't innocent either. Professionals and businessmen of various sorts indulge in unscrupulous practices. I recently had a chat with some doctors, surgeons and owners of nursing homes about the tricks of their trade. Here is what they said 1) 40-60% kickbacks for lab tests. When a doctor (whether family doctor / general physician, consultant or surgeon) prescribes tests - pathology, radiology, X-rays, MRIs etc. - the laboratory conducting those tests gives commissions. In South and Central Mumbai -- 40%. In the suburbs north of Bandra -- a whopping 60 per cent! He probably earns a lot more in this way than the consulting fees that you pay. 2) 30-40% for referring to consultants, specialists & surgeons. When your friendly GP refers you to a specialist or surgeon, he gets 30-40%. 3) 30-40% of total hospital charges. If the GP or consultant recommends hospitalization, he will receive kickback from the private nursing home as a percentage of all charges including ICU, bed, nursing care, surgery. 4) Sink tests. Some tests prescribed by doctors are not needed. They are there to inflate bills and commissions. The pathology lab understands what is unnecessary. These are called "sink tests"; blood, , stool samples collected will be thrown. 5) Admitting the patient to "keep him under observation". People go to cardiologists feeling unwell and anxious. Most of them aren't really having a heart attack, and cardiologists and family doctors are well aware of this. They admit such safe patients, put them on a saline drip with mild sedation, and send them home after 3-4 days after charging them a fat amount for ICU, bed charges, visiting doctors fees. 6) ICU minus intensive care. Nursing homes all over the suburbs are run by doctor couples or as one-man-shows. In such places, nurses and ward boys are 10th cl drop-outs in ill-ing uniforms. These "nurses" sit at the reception counter, give injections and saline drips, perform ECGs, apply dressings and change bandages, and ist in the operation theatre. At night, they even sit outside the Intensive Care Units; there is no resident doctor. In case of a crisis, the doctor -- who usually lives in the same building -- will turn up after 20 minutes, after this nurse calls him. Such ICUs admit safe patients to fill up beds. Genuine patients who require emergency care are sent elsewhere to hospitals having a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) round-the-clock. 7) Unnecessary caesarean surgeries and hysterectomies. Many surgical procedures are done to keep the cash register ringing. Caesarean deliveries and hysterectomy (removal of uterus) are high on the list. While the woman with labour -pains is screaming and panicking, the obstetrician who gently suggests that caesarean is best seems like an angel sent by God! Menopausal women experience bodily changes that make them nervous and gullible. They can be frightened by words like " and "fibroids" that are in almost every normal woman's radiology reports. When a gynaecologist gently suggests womb removal "as a precaution", most women and their husbands agree without a second's thought. 8) Cosmetic surgery advertised through newspapers. Liposuction and plastic surgery are not minor procedures. Some are life-threateningly major. But advers make them appear as easy as facials and waxing. The Indian medical council has strict rules against such misrepresentation. But nobody is interested in taking action. 9) Indirect kickbacks from doctors to prestigious hospitals. To be on the panel of a prestigious hospital, there is give-and-take involved. The hospital expects the doctor to refer many patients for hospital admission. If he fails to send a certain number of patients, he is quietly dumped. And so he likes to admit patients even when there is no need. 10) "Emergency surgery" on dead body. If a surgeon hurriedly wheels your patient from the Intensive Care Unit to the operation theatre, refuses to let you go inside and see him, and wants your signature on the consent form for "an emergency operation to save his life", it is likely that your patient is already dead. The "emergency operation" is for inflating the bill; if you agree for it, the surgeon will come out 15 minutes later and report that your patient died on the operation table. And then, when you take delivery of the dead body, you will pay OT charges, anaesthesiologist's charges, blah-blah- Doctors are humans too. You can't trust them blindly. Please understand the difference. Young surgeons and old ones. The young ones who are setting up nursing home etc. have heavy loans to settle. To pay back the loan, they have to perform as many operations as possible. Also, to build a retion, they have to perform a large number of operations and develop their skills. So, at first, every case seems fit for cutting. But with age, experience and prosperity, many surgeons lose their taste for cutting, and stop recommending operations. Physicians and surgeons. To a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Surgeons like to solve medical problems by cutting, just as physicians first seek solutions with drugs. So, if you take your medical problem to a surgeon first, the chances are that you will unnecessarily end up on the operation table. Instead, please go to an ordinary GP first Prof. B. M.
