Vidisha, MP, Oct 28 (UNI) It's not the fear of booth capturers that is bothering government officals posted on election duty for October 30 by-poll for Vidisha Lok Sabha constituency.

Rather, it's the fear of dreaded mosquitoes that inflict dengue and chikungunya. The government officials are busy consulting doctors and receiving tips for prevention of these diseases.

Government officials pointed out that the wrath of mosquitoes could affect them in view of their posting in far-flung areas, often devoid of necessary facilities, during election duty.

No health examination of government officials on election duty has taken place. However, they are consulting doctors privately.

Meanwhile, deployment of health officials and doctors from Vidisha, Raisen and Sehore on election duty will affect health services. However, election duty of about dozen government officals had been cancelled due to illness from chikungunya or some other disease.

Besides medicines, the sale of mosquito coils, mosquito nets and creams had gone up. Government official are also not forgetting food with them, as they are afraid that eating outside could affect their health.

Vidisha CMO K D Dubey and Raisen CMO S K Meena said health examination of government officials had not been done but doctors and health officials will constantly monitor the situation.
