The MCGM is fully prepared to combat the menace of dengue and malaria in the city. The municipal corporation has bought 8 fogging mobile machines. Apart from this, 175 fogging machines have been bought. During the monsoon season about 20.000 people were suffering from various diseases out of which 170 people died. Although the civic body had assured citizens they had fully prepared to combat the monsoon related diseases, but their assurances fell on face as increasing number of monsoon illnesses kept registering at hospitals. The section of the MCGM Health Dept. in charge of combating mosquito menace had only 96 old machines besides shortage of staff. These were being sighted as the reason of the dept’s failure to control mosquito menace. The new hi tech fogging machines, the civic body says, will bring diseases under control. The plan is to go to each corporator’s ward and conducting fogging and spraying activities. With cameraperson Rajendra Prasad, Ashok Jagtap for NMTV News.
