Kejriwal government lies about number of Dengue cases in 2018 in Delhi

AAP asserts that the Dengue cases in Delhi have dramatically come down from 15,867 cases in 2015 to 2,798 cases in 2018, but data shows there were 7,136 cases of Dengue in 2018 in Delhi

BJP leader and a medical professional Dr. Nandini Sharma today posted a tweet exposing the Kejriwal-led AAP government in Delhi for publishing lies in their advertisements and misleading the people of the National Capital. AAP had published an advertisement with a reduced number of Dengue cases than the actual number that came up in Delhi in 2018.

In an advertisement, AAP asserts that the Dengue cases in Delhi have dramatically come down from 15,867 cases in 2015 to 2,798 cases in 2018. However, Dr. Nandini Sharma contested the claim made by AAP in the advertisement citing the report by National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme(NVBDCP) that states that there were 7,136 cases of Dengue in the Union Territory of Delhi.

The menace of Dengue during the monsoons have been one of the primary issues grappling the national capital for sometime now. With state assembly elections just months away, Kejriwal has zeroed in on the Dengue issue to solicit votes from the residents of Delhi. To this end, campaigns are being designed to portray that Kejriwal-led AAP government has been instrumental in reducing the number of Dengue cases in the city. Numbers are therefore allegedly fiddled with to give a rosy picture of AAP’s work in reducing the water-borne disease.

It is also pertinent to note that, Arvind Kejriwal, who is using reduction in Dengue cases in Delhi as one of the planks for his re-election bid, had in 2012 likened himself to a Dengue mosquito saying that his sting could trouble both Congress and the BJP.
