CM Kejriwal launches 10-week awareness campaign to defeat dengue
New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday launched a 10-week mass awareness campaign and appealed to people to check stagnant water at their houses to check the spread of dengue in the national capital.
“People of Delhi have once again started the fight against dengue. As part of the 10-week campaign, I cleared the stagnant water in my house on the first Sunday and eliminated chances of mosquito breeding,” tweeted Kejriwal.
“Honourable Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal kickstarted the anti-dengue campaign by removing the stagnant clean water at his residence. He said that like last year, two crore Delhiites will come together to make this initiative successful and defeat dengue,” the Chief Minister's Office tweeted.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also urged people to participate in the campaign through his tweet. He tweeted, “Often we feel that there is no stagnant water in the house, but if you take 10 minutes to check the house, you will find stagnant water somewhere. That is why it is important to join the #10Hafte10Baje10Minute campaign.”
Kejriwal said in a tweet, “Two crore people of Delhi had defeated dengue last year. Let’s start the next 10-week campaign from 10 am today. I will check stagnant water at my home. You should also do it. We have to defeat dengue this time as well.”
