Siliguri, 10th August (Sanjay Malakar): Mayor Ashok Bhattacharya actively participated in a campaign to spread awareness regarding the harmful effects of mosquito-borne tropical disease, dengue. In this regard, the Mayor started campaigning from his ward itself, on Saturday. It is to be noted that the Siliguri Municipal Corporation has earmarked the month of August for the emergence of dengue as, during this month, people suffer from many mosquito-borne diseases.
