Gupta said Chief Minister Kejriwal is "politicising" the sensitive public health issue and taking false credit for the decline in dengue, with an eye on the Assembly elections, due early next year.

"It is fallacious to claim that 15,867 cases in 2015 came down to 2,798 in 2018. The truth is that his (Kejriwal) regime during 2015-18 recorded 27,822 cases. During the corresponding period of 2011-14, the dengue cases were far less at 9,793. Thus dengue cases recorded a growth of 284 percent," he said.
On Wednesday, Kejriwal held a press conference and announced a special campaign against dengue that will involve wide participation of people in preventing the spread of mosquito-borne diseases. At the presser, the CM had said that Delhi witnessed 80 percent decline in dengue cases in four years.
"In 2015 — the first year of our government — 15,867 cases were reported, but in 2018 it was reduced to 2,798. Within these years Delhi witnessed 80 percent decrease in the cases of dengue," he had said.
The campaign, under the name ''10 Hafte, 10 Baje 10 minute'', aims at ensuring that water doesn't remain stagnant at people’s houses or in their neighborhoods to check to breed of mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus.
