The seventh week of the 10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute anti-dengue campaign seeks to encourage shopkeepers in Delhi to inspect their shops and surroundings for stagnant water every Sunday for 10 minutes, and drain it to prevent the breeding of Dengue mosquitoes around them. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will be encouraging all the shopkeepers in Delhi to participate in the 10 Hafte 10 Baje 10 Minute campaign.
Kejriwal had also said that with the collective efforts of all the Delhiites, "we have to stop the breeding of dengue mosquitoes and protect our family and the entire Delhi from Dengue." Inspecting the surrounding market areas and their shops will keep the shopkeepers as well as their customers safe from Dengue.

We checked the house and replaced the accumulated clean water. You must also involve your family in this campaign. We have to defeat dengue together. #10Hafte10Baje10Minute Har Ravivaar, Dengue Par Vaar."
