New Delhi: The Centre was asked today by the Delhi High Court to submit to it a report on implementation of the government`s long-term action plan to control the outbreak of dangerous diseases like dengue in the city. A division bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw sought the report within three weeks from the Union Ministry of Health and posted the matter for December 12. Appearing for the Centre, Additional Solicitor General Rajeev Mehra said, "The officials are doing something on the issue (of implementing the action plan). Let me file a report on it." Accepting the ASG`s submissions, the court granted three weeks time to him to file the report. The court`s direction came during hearing of a petition by advocate Gaurav Kumar Bansal seeking formation of an independent committee to monitor implementation of a long-term action plan, formulated by the Centre earlier, to combat the mosquito menace in the city.
