Councillor Shoaib Danish from Congress is down with fever. According to a social media post by one of his well wishers, he has been hospitalized after suffering from fever.
Though Councillor Danish could not be reached on his phone, a youth Congress leader Pervez Alam Khan who visited him at his Zakir Nagar residence told OKHLATIMES that the councillor has been suffering high fever.
Till the filing of the report, it is not known whether the councillor, who was seen supervising fogging in the locality to stop mosquito breeding, is suffering dengue or chikungunya or viral fever.
Since the outbreak of the deadly dengue in the locality, several residents have been reportedly down with dengue and other mosquito-related ailment. Moreover, several deaths too have been reported from the deprived locality. On Eid al-Adha, two deaths were reported from the locality one from Abul Fazal Enclave and another from Batla House. Residents lamented that dengue deaths are be underreported and many have even forgotten the count.
Okhla is facing a health care crisis that neither the media nor the BJP-led civic agencies or AAP-led Delhi Government is willing to accept.
Though parties are making tall claims, the fact of the matter is no ground work has been done in the locality with large number of residents hospitalized with seats almost full.
