After the Association of Nurses, the dissension in the Association of the Pharmacists of Uttarakhand has also come out in the open.
The sixth biennial convention of the Uttarakhand Diploma Pharmacist association was convened on Sunday. In the convention a new working committee of the association was to be elected. While the convention was in progress some pharmacists assembled outside and started slogan shouting. The convenor of agitating faction S P Semwal said that the elections of the association are being held on incomplete electoral rolls. He claimed that some of the members of who hold key position in the association have started behaving in an autocratic manner due to which resentment is brewing in the pharmacists. This faction of the pharmacist also lodged their protest before the cabinet minister Subodh Uniyal who attended the convention as chief guest.
These allegations however were refuted by office bearers of the association. Pharmacist Sudha Kukrerti said that the pharmacists who held protest outside the venue of the convention were actually not the members of the association. It is learnt that there are more than 500 pharmacists appointed in the year 2006 who are working in the sub centres and ANM centres of the state health services. These pharmacists now want that they too should be posted in the health centres and hospitals.The counting of votes for different posts of the association was going on at the time of filing this story.
