Lucknow: A day after Allahabad High Court rapped the Uttar Pradesh government for its failure to contain the dengue menace, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday directed officials to launch a campaign in every district of the state to check the disease.
At a meeting held at his official residence, he also directed the formation of a high level committee under Chief Secretary Rahul Bhatnagar to monitor the situation.
Not satisfied with the Uttar Pradesh government's action on dengue prevention, yesterday the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court has summoned the state's chief secretary on 27 October.
The court has also asked him as to why action should not be taken against the state government as per the constitutional provisions as it could not discharge its duties in this matter.
Ajay Kumar Lallu also said that governments led by BJP, BSP and SP that ruled Uttar Pradesh for the past 32 years failed to live up to the expectations of people
