The Hush Post: All the chemists/pharmacy will remain shut in Punjab on Monday. This is in protest to raids on various chemist shops to pounce on alleged illegal sale of medicines as drugs.
The chemists are protesting saying that the drugs are sold elsewhere and the chemists are unnecessarily being targeted without any proof.
There have been large confiscation of drug consignments in the recent past and many drug dealers have been targeted. However, chemists say that there is a world of difference in targeting drug dealers and druggists, chemists and retail shop owners, who are in no way involved in this illegitimate activity.
