Delhi-NCR : NGT to combat Dengue, Chikungunya

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
National Green Tribunal appoints 10 commissioners to inspect preparedness to combat the spread of deadly vector-borne diseases like dengue and chikungunya in the national Capital. Refuses to agree with civic bodies that most dengue patients came from outside Delhi.
As vector-borne diseases are spreading in the capital, 10 local commissioners across the three municipal corporations have been asked to inspect different places across the city, and report back to the National Green Tribunal.

Unhappy with the current process of dealing with the spread of dengue and chikungunya, the tribunal rapped authorities on Thursday, calling their steps taken to contain the menace as a mere “formality.”

The bench headed by NGT chairperson Swatanter Kumar also refused to agree with submissions made by civic bodies that dengue patients were mostly outsiders and sufficient precautions have been taken to handle the situation.
