"Dengue se Jung-Janta Ke Sang"
The Chief Minister Chouhan has said that the need for “Dengu Se Jung-Janta Ke Sang” campaign on 15th September was necessitated because dengue cases have been reported in some districts of the state. Government employees will do their job. Along with this, the common people should also come forward for this, only then the campaign will be successful. Under the campaign, the work of fogging, destroying larvae, sanitation work and putting medicines where there is water logging will be done by the government staff.
Chief Minister Chouhan has appealed to the citizens that if it has been at least seven days in their house that water has been filled, then do not allow such water to stagnate. In any water tank, pot, pit and in the cooler, if there is any water filled for a long time, then immediately empty that water. Medicines can be put in pits etc. to kill larvae. Cleanliness is essential. Chief Minister Chouhan has appealed to the public to clean their houses if necessary. Pour out the filled water. If necessary, add medicine to the stagnant water to kill the larvae. Apart from this, check coolers, pits, water tanks as well, because dengue spreads due to the growth of larvae. We should not allow the conditions that lead to the growth of larvae. For this the cooperation of the general public is necessary. Chief Minister Chouhan has expressed confidence that with public cooperation, we will fight and win the war against dengue – Window to News
