The decision was taken in a meeting held on Tuesday which was presided over by the  federal government's focal person on polio Aiysha Raza.

The meeting was held to rid the country of the polio, with special reference to Balochistan.

Expressing serious concerns over increasing polio cases, they decided to  remove hurdles faced by polio teams in Fata, Karachi and parts of Balochistan.

It was noted that refusal of parents to administer vaccines to their wards was adding  to the number of cases. "Government was utilizing all available resources to control polio disease," Raza said.
