Bollywood legendry star Amitabh Bachchan who has lent his support to many causes, and the best known is ‘Do Boond Zindagi Ke’. The actor recently posted about his happiness for the successful polio eradication campaign by the Government of India.
Big-B tweeted that, “T 1550 – Polio eradicated from India .. an 8 year campaign with the UNICEF ambassadorship ! Feel such accomplishment and joy !”
A couple of months ago India was declared polio free by WHO, and even the polio endemic states like Bihar and UP have not reported any new case of polio for three consecutive years now.
Apart from India, the other countries which were given polio-free certificates were Bangladesh, Bhutan, North Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives and Myanmar.
It is indeed a matter of great pride that such a stong drive initiated about half a century ago has become fruitful after so long.
