‘Operation-Satark Dengue’ was the name of campaign, launched by Public Health Department (PHD) under Town services of Bhilai Steel Plant from October 22 to November 8 in different sectors under BSP Township for making the Township free from dengue carrying mosquitoes.

It may be mention that the dengue carrying mosquitoes breed only in clean water and they bite in day time alone. Their breeding is encouraged by the negligent attitude of residents by leaving stale water in coolers, potted plants, old tires etc without replenishing it. The residents were apprised about these facts by distributing pamphlets in all sectors the same context. Apart from this, for controlling the density of mosquitoes, the fogging operations were undertaken in different phases.
