But the gov­ern­ment has in­tro­duced its mea­sures to over­come it. Re­cently, the Sindh gov­ern­ment launched a cam­paign whereby 2.2 mil­lion chil­dren will be ad­min­is­tered po­lio drops. It is a mar­vel­lous step by Sindh gov­ern­ment be­cause the chil­dren are the future of Pak­istan. — Via email
