Chittoor: Local MLA D A Satyaprabha gave a call to residents to keep city clean and green so that mosquitoes can be eradicated. She stated that it is the responsibility of citizens to make Chittoor free from mosquitoes as it has been included in the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

The MLA called for combined efforts by Chittoor Municipal Corporation and District Medical and Health department to eradicate the mosquitoes in the city through proper planning. Satyaprabha launched an initiative called ‘Domalapai Dandayatra’ here on Thursday.

The MLA stated that cleaning the drainages would alone be the first remedy to keep the city free from mosquitoes. “Residents should know that majority health hazards occur due to mosquito bites. The poor and weaker sections of the society are the immediate victims of mosquito menace.

We have to take a pledge to keep the city free from mosquitoes and ensure health for one and all,” she added. Mayor K Hemalatha stated that instructions were given to officials concerned to spray bleaching power in the drainages, public toilets and on garbage piles.

She lamented that slum dwellers are not aware of mosquito prevalence in their localities. MLC B N Rajasimhulu said that Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is committed to develop city as model one. He assured of state government supplying drinking water from Handri Neeva to city residents.

Municipal Commissioner G Balasubramanyam, Deputy Mayor P Subramanyam and TDP corporators were present.
Earlier, the TDP leaders took part in the rally for creating awareness about the adverse effects of mosquito menace.
