NEW DELHI: The ruling AAP has armed itself with 40 fumigation machines to arrest the spread of dengue which has already claimed nearly 28 lives in the national capital.

The machines will be used in different Vidhan Sabha constituencies across the city as per demands and requirements, Party's Delhi unit secretary Saurabh Bharadwaj said.

"We have decided to use these machines wherever adequate fogging has not been done. This initiative is being undertaken at party level and there is no government or MCD involved," Bharadwaj said.

AAP has 67 MLAs and the machine could used in any of their constituencies.

Besides, the party has up set up "fever clinics" across Delhi to offer free treatment to dengue patients.

Also, its volunteers have undertaken door-to-door campaign to make people aware of the disease and report to the local malaria inspector if they come across any dengue patient.

The party is at loggerheads with the BJP-run municipal corporations over the issue. They accuse each other of not being able to control the dengue outbreak in the city.
