BJP workers protest rising dengue deaths in West Bengal

BJP activists staged protests in front of the Howrah Municipal Corporation (HMC) office on Tuesday against the rising number of dengue deaths in West Bengal.

The police placed three-level barricades on the road leading to the HMC office and prevented the BJP workers from entering it.

The BJP workers chanted slogans and carried a model of the aedes aegypti mosquito, the carrier of the dengue virus.

The West Bengal government has yet to release official figures on dengue-related deaths, but unconfirmed sources put the number at more than 50.

BJP activists had clashed with police during a protest over the same issue on Tuesday and were stopped from marching towards the residence of Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim.

Union Health Minister Bharati Pravin Pawar had last week accused the Trinamool Congress government in the state of failing to share the dengue-related data with the centre.
