Today is #WorldMalariaDay. Our government has made a Joint Action Plan (JAP) for control of vector-borne diseases, including malaria, in coordination with concerned departments. Never before has such huge deployment of personnel to combat vector borne diseases been made— Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) April 25, 2019
