Who Is ‘Prof. N John Camm’ Who Tweeted Praises of Yogi Adityanath?

A. John Camm, a professor of clinical cardiology (emeritus) at St. George's University of London, said that the Twitter account @njohncamm was "stealing his identity" and he did not know anyone named N John Camm or Narendra Yadav.

The Twitter account of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s office and several mainstream news outlets amplified a controversial tweet by a Twitter user, ‘N John Camm’, who claimed Yogi Adityanath could contain the spiralling riots in France within 24 hours.

BOOM found that the Twitter user who tweeted the remark is one Narendra Vikramaditya Yadav alias Narendra John Camm – a man with an opaque past in the medical profession in India and abroad and who has misappropriated the name Professor John Camm, a well-known cardiologist from the United Kingdom.

The real John Camm, who is a professor (emeritus) at St George’s University of London told BOOM via email that the Twitter account @njohncamm was “stealing his identity.”

On June 30, 2023, the Twitter handle @njohncamm claiming to be Professor N John Camm tweeted, “India must send @myogiadityanath to France to control riot situation there and My God, he will do it within 24 hours.”

France is reeling from widespread riots after a 17-year-old boy of Algerian heritage was shot dead by a police officer at a traffic stop in the Paris suburb of Nanterre on June 27, 2023. The spiralling violence by protesters has resulted in the deployment of 45,000 police personnel, including special forces in various cities.

The handle quote tweeted the original tweet and wrote, “Whenever extremism fuels riots, chaos engulfs and law & order situation arises in any part of the globe, the World seeks solace and yearns for the transformative “Yogi Model” of Law & Order established by Maharaj Ji in Uttar Pradesh.”

“Narendra Yadav is a different person who sold me his company because of legal troubles”: Narendra John Camm to BOOM

BOOM also reached out to Narendra John Camm through email and WhatsApp using the number he tweeted in the past. He said he met Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath twice in June-July 2019 to set up cardiac centres.

Narendra John Camm denied all the allegations and claimed a rival cardiologist in the United States tried to malign him by linking his name to someone in Hyderabad.

“A rival cardiologist in US concocted stories and linked my name to somebody in India/ Hyderabad and posted on internet and thats what is being used as reference to malign me,” N. John Camm told BOOM.

But soon he contradicted himself by claiming Narendra Yadav was a different person who sold his company to him because of legal troubles.

“The said person is a completely different person who sold me his company because of his legal trouble,” he said.

“He sold company in 2019. Earlier it was Braunwald Hospital that I changed to John Camm healthcare by my name,” he added.

When BOOM asked him if he could share Narendra Yadav’s contact or provide a photo of the two of them together he said he lost touch with Yadav and that the former was in the UK but “no more in public life”.

He also claimed N John Camm was his name since birth but refused to provide any supporting documents to prove the same. Later on, he added he had 243 documents since birth to prove his identity and would “sue people who act otherwise.”

N John Camm said his wife’s name is Anita John Camm and that she is based in Germany with him.

When BOOM confronted him with the denial by Professor A John Camm at St. George’s University of London, he retorted by calling the professor an ‘idiot’.

“He is an idiot. No one told him my full name. Is Sushil Modi stealing the identity of Narendra Modi?” he retorted.
