Beat this! A Legislative Council member on Tuesday said “sterilisation” was the answer to keep mosquitoes at bay, reports PTI.
During zero hour, Congress member Jyoti raised the issue of mosquito menace in the state and asked the government to order regular fogging. She asked the Chair to direct the government to protect people from diseases caused by mosquito bites. With many other members narrating their woes due to mosquitoes, BJP member Baidyanath Prasad suggested sterilisation of mosquitoes, triggering peals of laughter from his colleagues.
RJD’s Nawal Kishore Yadav quipped criminals and mosquitoes enjoy total freedom in the state.
Health minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey and parliamentary affairs minister Bijendra Prasad Yadav were present in the House but the government failed to come up with an answer.
