No action against unlicensed medical stores

Kandhkot – Due to the negligence of the district administration and health department, medicines are being sold at unregistered medical stores across Kashmore district without any fear.

Hundreds of unregistered medical stores have been opened in different towns and cities of the district where uneducated and untrained persons play with the lives of citizens by selling medicines without knowing even their names.

A doctor told this scribe on condition of anonymity that although there was a ban on the sale of sex drugs, the chemists, especially Hindus, brought Indian and American products to the country illegally and sold these at higher costs.

He said the Excise Department had not conducted any raid to prevent the sale of spirit without licence.

People also complained that there was a dearth of freezers and refrigerators in which the vaccines could be kept to save them from soaring temperatures, particularly in June and July.

It is worth mentioning here that due to leniency by the higher authorities, the sale of spurious drugs is also on the rise in the entire district.
