The chief minister sought support from Delhiites, like they had extended to his government during the implementation of odd-even car rationing scheme.
"In the next 10 days, we will come out with a detailed plan to tackle dengue and chikungunya in Delhi. There is a need to act on a war-footing against these diseases," he said.
The number of people affected by malaria till August 12 this year has climbed to 385, while the figure for chikungunya stands at 283.
