Akhtar urged the fumigation staff to ensure fumigation in and around city rivers and drains where water stayed two times to eliminate the breeding of larva and do spray with hand machines where it is not possible to do so with spray vehicles.

He said every area must be covered in fumigation drive and all manpower and machinery should be incorporated in this work.
