As part of the programme, water that is stagnant inside houses and their surroundings will be emptied. The programme will be conducted in various localities spread over 10 weeks, with civic officials explaining to the residents the importance of clearing stagnant water to prevent spread of diseases like malaria and dengue.

GHMC corporation’s chief entomologist Rambabu said that the wing had identified 4,846 colonies for carrying out awareness drives. He added that GHMC will take up aggressive fogging and spraying across colonies.
