AAP, led by its youth wing, started a cleaning and fogging drive across the city last week. Congress, which has accused the AAP-led government of not releasing funds to the municipal corporations, has been carrying out its own drive for the past few days, while some BJP members carried out a fogging exercise in their respective areas.

On September 27, which was also the first foundation day the AAP youth wing, members carried out a "safai abhiyaan" in the morning, followed by a fumigation drive. "Fogging is being carried out by party members in all 70 constituencies. Teams have been deputed to carry out a cleanliness drive," said a senior party member. The cleaning and fogging were carried out in Rohini, Patparganj, RK Puram, Karawal Nagar, Trinagar, Model Town, Seelampur, Sangam Vihar, Karol Bagh, Tilak Nagar, Mehrauli, Shahdara, Dwarka and Mundka.

Congress, too, is in the middle of its weeklong programme of fogging across the city. "We had to carry out the drive as both the Delhi government and the BJP-ruled corporations have failed to check and control dengue," said Ajay Maken, DPCC president.
