TANDO MUHAMMAD KHAN - Scores of residents of various towns and villages of Tando Muhammad Khan have urged the district administration and health department to take prompt measures for anti-mosquito fumigation in the areas.

While addressing a press conference here at the Press Club, Muhammad Usman, Muhammad Sharif, Farhan Adeel, Noor Muhammad Memon and others said that no fumigation was carried out during the last couple of years and the towns villages of TM Khan had become a hub of mosquitoes and flies.

The situation has led to an alarming increase in malaria cases besides exposing the people to unhygienic conditions, they said adding that non-spraying of insecticides, under the malaria programme, during the last two decades has resulted in an alarming increase in the population of harmful insects, apart from creating filthy conditions.
