CM seeks shopkeepers' help in anti-dengue drive

Sunday, 18 October 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will  encourage shopkeepers in Delhi to inspect their shops and surroundings for stagnant water from this Sunday for 10 minutes and drain it to prevent the breeding of dengue mosquitoes around them.

Kejriwal had also said that with the collective efforts of all the Delhiites. "We have to stop the breeding of dengue mosquitoes and protect our family and the entire Delhi from Dengue. Inspecting the surrounding market areas and their shops will keep the shopkeepers as well as their customers safe from dengue," he said.

Kejriwal had tweeted, "Today is the sixth Sunday of the campaign against dengue, my family also joined the campaign this time. We checked the house and replaced the accumulated clean water. You must also involve your family in this campaign. We have to defeat dengue together. #10Hafte10Baje10Minute Har Ravivaar, Dengue Par Vaar."

This year, the Delhi government has also launched a Dengue helpline - 01123300012 and WhatsApp helpline - 8595920530 to assist the general public with Dengue.
