Thank god it's fogging time in Dwarka Akhilesh Pandey

Although this year there has been hardly any cases of dengue and chikungunya, municipal officials of Dwarka are not taking any chances. Zealous ward councillors and sanitation officials of the sub-city have embarked upon a fogging drive to prevent mosquito breeding. Residential pockets of DDA, markets, CGHS societies, institutions and other places have already been fogged.

Mayor of SDMC and a resident of Sector 6, Kamaljeet Sehrawat, said, “Fogging has started from mid-August in all the areas under SDMC. This shall continue till September when the temperature dips to a level that is non-conducive for breeding of flies and mosquitoes. People are welcome to contact my office directly if they want their areas and societies fogged. My office number is 092126 11248 and the person in charge is Rajpal.”

Residents of the sub city and RWAs are relieved to see their areas being fogged. SS Chowhan, president of Radhika Apartments, Sector 14, said, “This year the number of cases of dengue and chikungunya is fewer as compared to last year. However, as a precautionary measure we had requested MCD to fog our society. They readily complied and have promised to repeat the process every week until September.”

Akash Ganga Apartments, which was fogged about 10 days back, is planning to approach SDMC for another round next week. President of the society, Maj JC Vashisht, said, “We want at least two more rounds of fogging. This year, till now there has been no case of dengue or chikungunya in our society. We definitely don’t want any cases to occur in the last phase of this season for vector-borne diseases.”

However, AS Chatwal, RWA secretary from Sector 8, has reported some cases of dengue and chikungunya in his area and emphasised the need for proper fogging.
