Imrul Hossain for DOT
 Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Md Atiqul Islam said that it was not possible for the Mayor-Councilors to control dengue alone, reports Bangla Tribune. The Mayor said this while speaking as the chief guest at a discussion and views-exchange meeting at a local convention centre at Mirpur area in Dhaka yesterday.
 “It’s not possible to control Aedes mosquito and dengue for the Mayor or Councilors alone. A social movement through the spontaneous participation of the people is necessary. The faith leaders can play a big role in this regard,” the Mayor said. “The Imams or Khatibs can raise awareness among the devotees about the necessity of cleanliness. Great care should be taken so that no water can get stagnated for more than three days,” he said.
