A national steering committee led by the Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Ministry will be formed to eradicate mosquitoes to prevent a dengue outbreak.
As part of the efforts, the two city corporations and the civil aviation authority will work simultaneously with the LGRD ministry.
LGRD Minister Tajul Islam confirmed the matter while briefing media following an inter-ministerial meeting at the secretariat today.
He said the decision to form the committee comes in response to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's recent directives on the matter.
The PM on March 30 asked authorities to take immediate steps to keep mosquitoes in check and make sure there is no spread of dengue.
