Bird flu scare: Rai cancels two-day Goa visit


New Delhi, Oct 24: In the wake of bird flu scare in the national capital, Delhi Development Minister Gopal Rai today cancelled his two-day visit to Goa which was scheduled to start tomorrow.

"The development minister has cancelled his two-day Goa visit owing to bird flu scare in city. Once the situation is controlled, the minister's visit will be rescheduled," said a senior AAP functionary.


The senior Aam Aamdi Party leader was to embark on a two-day visit to Goa from tomorrow to campaign for his party.

The state goes to poll next year.

Fifty-eight birds have been found dead so far in the national capital and out of them, three deaths have been confirmed to have been caused by H5N8 avian influenza.

Last month, the Kejriwal government had to face criticism as most of its ministers, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Health Minister Satyendar Jain, were away from the city amid outbreak of chikungunya and dengue.
