Chairman PAC also inaugurated polio campaign by administrating polio drops to the children. He said that it was our national obligation to make the campaign a success as this is the only way to get rid of this crippling disease. He said immunisation of kids with oral polio vaccine was inevitable to keep them safe from life-long paralysis. 

The epidemic can be eradicated completely if all the children under the age of five are administered anti-polio drops, he maintained.

He said the vaccine is completely safe and parents should not believe in misconceptions.
