Responding to the appeal by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, shopkeepers joined the 10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute anti-dengue campaign here on Sunday.
Mr. Kejriwal welcomed the move and thanked the shopkeepers for taking part and protecting themselves and their customers from dengue.
The seventh week of the programme sought to encourage shopkeepers in national capital to inspect their shops and surroundings for stagnant water every Sunday for 10 minutes and drain it to prevent the breeding of dengue mosquitoes around them.
This time, shopkeepers of Delhi also took part in the fight against dengue, checked the shops and changed the stagnant water. By doing so, they are protecting themselves and their customers from dengue. Delhi is again defeating Dengue [sic.], Mr. Kejriwal tweeted.
