"If only the Congress leaders, who have politicised the issue and protested over dengue deaths, have donated blood, it would have helped," AAP leader Dilip Pandey said while addressing a press conference here.

He said the AAP officials have met private medical practitioners in the city to start 'fever clinics', which would provide treatment to dengue patients for free. "This is a step to reduce the rush which is seen in government hospitals due to many dengue patients," Pandey added.

He added that the Delhi government was also taking all possible steps for the patients, like increasing the number of beds in hospitals. AAP workers would also go on a door-to-door survey at homes to find out the dengue situation, he added.

The AAP leader also blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party governed civic bodies for not taking enough preventive measures such as fogging. He said civic bodies were not doing enough in educating people about the preventive methods to avoid dengue.

Earlier during the day, Congress activists, including Congress Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken, staged protest outside Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence.
