MNS Chief Raj Thackeray once again blamed migrants in slums for the spread of malaria, asked party workers to launch a cleanliness drive and blamed the Shiv Sena-BJP-run MCGM of giving deflated figures of malaria. “Wherever you find garbage, clean it,” Raj Thackeray has said at a MNS party function. He once again blamed migrants in slums for the spread of malaria and asked party workers to launch a cleanliness drive and blamed the Shiv Sena-BJP-run MCGM of giving deflated figures of malaria. He said that the drive should not be limited to having photographs taken. Many political leaders have published their photographs cleaning Mumbai but it was a publicity stunt. It may be noted that Mumbai North MP Sanjay Nirupam, Thackeray’s punching bag, had sprayed from a fogging machine in Gorai while Suburban Guardian Minister Naseem Khan had visited two hospitals with malaria patients. Raj Thackeray also dismissed the MCGM’s malaria toll: He said that according to his information, 56 persons have died in KEM hospital in Mumbai alone due to malaria. Minister for Public Health Suresh Shetty released figures that showed 43 persons in the state, including 34 in Mumbai, as having died of malaria in Mumbai since April. Raj Thackeray reiterated that it is only Central, state or MCGM land that gets encroached upon; private land does not have slums. Bureau report – NMTV News.
