The protest followed comments by senior Congress leaders critical of the Delhi government's handling of the dengue outbreak in the national capital.

"This is a protest of humanity in pain and distress. Don't view it from the prism of politics. We demand immidiate action. The rift between the Aam Aadmi Party and BJP has weakened the Delhi (power) corridors," senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said earlier in the week.

"This (dengue cases) is an emergency situation. Nearly 2,000 people are affected. Both the Centre and the state government are not up to the mark. To draw attention to the government's inaction, we are going to demonstrate before the chief minister's residence," said Congress leader P.C. Chacko.

"Government hospitals don't have adequate beds or medicines or even test kits. The arrangements are grossly inadequate," he added.

More than 1,900 dengue cases have been recorded in the city this year.
