Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) started an anti-mosquito drive yesterday. CCC Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin inaugurated the programme at Ward No-21 (Jamal Khan area) to destroy mosquito larvae.
A total of 100 CCC workers were engaged in this regard, said Shafiqul Mannan Sidique, CCC chief conservancy officer.
Under the programme, the workers will use a fogger machine and three hand sprays at each of 41 wards every week, the officer said, adding that the drive will continue until further instruction.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony, the mayor urged the city dwellers to keep their surroundings clean and not to let water be clogged in flower tubs or any other pots inside houses and yards.
