The Punjab State Government has initiated a proactive step to combat dengue within the state. In response to the increased risk of dengue following floods, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann has introduced an anti-dengue campaign titled 'Har Shukravar Dengue te Vaar.' This campaign aims to mitigate the spread of this vector-borne disease, safeguarding the lives of the populace from its potential impact.
