He issued these directions in a meeting held to review the preparedness to deal with the diseases in Delhi.

The meeting was attended by Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, Delhi Chief Secretary M.M. Kutty along with officials from the three civic bodies, and health and urban development departments.

He discussed the past experiences and challenges and status of present preparedness.

"The role of every stakeholder must be clear so that there is effective implementation of measures to control mosquito breeding. These SOPs should be brought into public domain for public awareness," Baijal said in the meeting.

For proper coordination among the agencies, the L-G also asked all stakeholders to share copies of their action plans for prevention of vector-borne diseases.

Circulars and directions should be issued in all government departments/private institutions to hold internal meetings to identify areas in their respective premises where mosquito breeding can occur and find ways to deal with the same.

Baijal directed the Health Department and other agencies to ensure that stocks of all logistic, including mosquito nets and medicines, were available in sufficient quantity.

He emphasized on educating the public and its involvement to contain dengue, chikungunya and other vector-borne diseases.
