There is a growing demand for fogging and cleaning of storm water drains in Dwarka. Residents’ Welfare Associations are saying that the municipal corporation should take precautionary measures to check dengue and chikungunya cases in the sub city.

SN Vashishtha, president of Akash Ganga Apartments, Sector 6, told City Spidey, “The municipal corporation should take a serious approach towards the issue before the rainy season this year. Last year, the residents in the area were badly affected with dengue and chikungunya. There were more than 20 cases in our society.”

“We tried fogging at the time but it was a late response. This year, we want it a bit earlier and on a regular basis,” he added.

Residents are also saying storm water drains in DDA pockets are choked and are full of filth. Due to this, water stagnates and becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Ved Prakash, president of Rihayashi Apartments RWA, Sector 12, said, "There is an urgent need to clean storm water drains and repair them too. The corporation should also ensure that water does not stagnate. We want proper monitoring and precautionary steps from the authority.”
