THE BHOPAL Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday went for a special sanitation campaign — garbage removal, clearing stagnant water in basements and other possible sources of mosquito breeding. The corporation also carried out fogging operations and spraying of insecticides. The campaign was undertaken following rise in cases of diseases caused by mosquito.
