Besides, ten magistrates have been appointed in ten regions to strengthen the anti-mosquito drive, he said.

Replying to a question, the DNCC mayor said, “We will apply biological pesticide to destroy the Aedes larvae soon and it can be possible to control dengue if we can start a social movement with the involvement of all.”
