On Chief Minister's request, Delhi Lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal has also directed DDA and Delhi Police to join government's dengue campaign.

According to Delhi Chief Minister office sources, Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal has directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Vice Chairman and the Delhi Police Commissioner to issue directions to their respective departments to join the campaign launched by the Delhi government to fight dengue.
