 Government Efforts Played Crucial Role In Containing Swine Flu: Soni
Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni on Saturday claimed that the spread of swine flu pandemic had been largely contained with the efforts of Government and crucial role played by media in educating people about the deadly disease.

Addressing media after inaugurating a two-day film festival of short documentaries by well-known photographer and art historian Benoy K Behl in the national capital, Soni said: "The Government has been successful in providing information to people on swine flu. Even television channels have played a major role in educating people by inviting doctors and experts in their studios every day to provide information about the deadly virus."

The Minister said the government has taken concrete steps to implement major schemes during its first 100 days in office.

"The government has taken concrete steps on all the flagship schemes introduced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who is himself monitoring their implementation," Soni said.

Soni, while seeking greater cooperation from states, said they should make extra efforts to provide benefits of various central schemes to people.
