Tamilnadu BJP protests against dengue outbbreak
Chennai: About 200 workers, led by State party president Tamilisai Soundararajan, were detained by the police when they tried to enter Ripon Buildings in protest against the Corporation of Chennai for allegedly failing to take proactive steps to contain the spread of dengue
Tamilisai said the government was unwilling to release the figures of those who were being treated for dengue in private hospitals.
The Corporation has not taken initiatives to control dengue. Officials are resorting to underreporting of dengue cases instead, she said. Chennai Corporation has officially announced only 96 dengue cases this year.
