All chemists here will close their shops to protest against the introduction of e-pharmacy on Wednesday. Members of all chemists’ unions including retailers, wholesale dealers and medical shops in hospitals will join the protest.

The chemists are opposing the implementation of the e-pharmacy law by the Union government as it will hit their business adversely. President of the district chemists association Jasvir Singh Mehraj and president of the retail chemists association Ashok Balianwali said that members of the association will hold a protest at Gandhi market and also assemble at the office of the chief medical officer (CMO) and give a memorandum of their demands to him and the deputy commissioner.
