Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad may be finding it difficult to convince Delhiites how not to allow contaminated water in their surrounding area. Instead of waiting for the municipal officials to clean the surroundings, the minister suggested, people should take care of things themselves.
"I have a daily chore," he boasted. "Every night I have to ensure that the water bowl for dogs in my lawn remains empty," he said.
"My dogs don't drink the water fully, so I empty it and turn the bowl upside down," he said at a function trying to convince citizens not to have stagnant pools of water in their homes.
