Deputy Minister of Highways Mervyn Silva said he would not let any dengue deaths occur after August 1st and if a death does occur, officials of the relevant authorities will be tied to a tree as punishment.
Speaking at a media briefing Deputy Minister Mervyn Silva said that he would take measures to tie the members of Pradeshiya sabha, health officials, grama officials and samurdhi officials to a tree located close to the dengue victim s house.
He said that measures should be taken to clear all areas by August 1 and officials shouldn t be afraid to nab offenders who throw dirt on to the road.
Even if hotels have our photographs don t be afraid to check these places. If someone comes to throw dirt they will leave the place only with a scar, he said.
