Kejriwal inspects office, as part of drive against Dengue

New Delhi, Sep 20 (UNI) Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday inspected his chamber in the Delhi Secretariat, as part of the '10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute' campaign.
Mr Kejriwal replaced stagnant clean water in the flower pots in his office, so as to prevent breeding of Dengue mosquitoes in his office.
Sharing pictures of him replacing clean water from flower pots on his official Twitter handle, he posted, ''This year experts had warned us that Dengue is likely to be dangerous. But Delhiites efforts were paying off and so far Delhi has kept Dengue under control.”
In 2015, Delhi had recorded 15,867 cases of Dengue, which came down to under 3,000 in 2018.
Mr Kejriwal had said earlier this week that experts had warned of a cyclical spike in Dengue this year and that this had led to the government, launching a mega drive against Dengue.
After launching the campaign on September 1 for residents to inspect their homes, the Chief Minister had also directed all government offices to conduct the inspection in office spaces on every Friday morning, at 1100 hrs.
