Mosquito free school premises to save children from Dengue, Chikungunya like viral fevers.

This petition had 107 supporters


The young population in our country is vulnerable to viral fevers like Dengue, Chikungunya, Malaria, etc. during their school, college and tuition hours. The central govt. is already issuing cautionary advisory suggesting people to destroy/remove/clear the potential mosquito breeding sites. While the parents take care of such issues in and around their homes. There is no guarantee that the same is done by school authorities voluntarily in and around their premises.

Therefore, I request Sri Prakash Javadekar and Sri Jagat Prakash Nadda to bring in the law to make it mandatory for Schools, Colleges, Private Tuitions, Vocational courses and summer camps to keep their premises clean, clearing/removing the potential mosquito breeding sites, weekly insecticides sprays, and finally use the mosquito repellents as the final measure (neem oil based preferably).

As parents, we are ready to bear the costs incurred by schools, which would be nominal given a typical school size of 500. A typical cost should not exceed ₹100 per child per year. Even if it's slightly higher also no parent would object.

Therefore, I request your kind consideration to bring in a rule to make it mandatory for schools to be mosquito free which ultimately protects our children.

Thanks and Regards,
