The district collectorate witnessed demonstrations by around 250 medical representatives pressing for their long-pending demands. The protestors voiced their discontent against government policies and emphasised the need for action.

He stated that approximately two lakh sales and medical representatives had actively taken part in this bandh across the country.

Among their demands are the removal of GST on medical equipment and a request to cease GPS tracking of medical representatives.

A delegation, led by Anil Mahajan, Shrikant Popse, Vishal Bhumre, Gopal Kasar, Rahul Wagh, Rahul Sarode, and others, submitted a memorandum outlining these demands to the district collector.
