Govt's steps to curb dengue outbreak ineffective: Bapa
Staff reporter :
Bangladesh Paribesh Andolon (Bapa) General Secretary Dr Abdul Motin on Friday said that the government's steps to curb dengue outbreak proved ineffective.
"It was late in starting measures against dengue, and even after that, the govt is yet to put in all-out efforts in this regard," the Bapa leader said.
He said it at a programme in front of the National Museum in the city's Shahbagh on Friday.
He urged the government to use all the different sectors of local
government, municipality, union, ward, education, culture, sports, industry, business, construction, social institutions, parliament members, public leaders and citizens into urgent cleanliness programme.
About the import of mosquito repellents, Motin said "It is a failed project of the government."
