738 Spurious Drugs Cases, 528 Put On Back Burner

Jaipur: The previous Congress government was apparently very kind to the traders selling death in name of medicine. The situation was such that during these five years, Dept. to control spurious medicines found 738 medicines to be of substandard grade in sample testing, but legal action was taken and challan presented only in 90 cases.

Laxity was shown in taking action against firms related to 89 medicines which were directly found to be fake in sample test. Of these, investigation of 64 medicines has not been completed till now while complaints filed only in 25 out of 89 cases.

The slow pace of probe during Cong govt points towards a nexus between govt machinery and pharma firms. In previous govt, responsibility of Drugscontrol Dept. was first with Raghu Sharma and later with Parsadilal Meena. However, pace of probe in these cases remained the same.
