LAHORE: Punjab Excise and Taxation Minister Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman has said all possible measures are being adopted to thwart dengue.
Talking to party workers at his Cooperative Store residence on Monday, he said dengue was a social issue and it could be eliminated through collective efforts. He recalled that an
effective strategy was adopted for coping with the worst dengue virus in 2011 as a result of which it was controlled successfully.
He said Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had assigned elected representatives to conduct indoor surveillance and destroy dengue nurseries through mechanical and chemical
methods. On his directions, he said, spray in parks, under-construction buildings, junkyards and graveyards is also underway.
