Babar Bin Atta, PM's focal person on polio resigns

Prime Minister Imran Khan’s focal person on polio Babar Bin Atta has resigned after a stint of one year citing personal reasons, sources said.

Babar Bin Atta, in a tweet, said, “After a stint of over a year as the Prime Ministers Focal Person for Polio, I have asked the PM to relieve me of my duties because of some personal reasons pertaining to my family. During this time I got a chance to work with the best minds in the world.”

He stated that I am resigning on personal reasons.

Babar Bin Atta says Pakistan’s polio program has made excellent results in a short period of time.

He further said, “When I look back, I am proud to say that I made all possible efforts to create that enabling environment where polio eradication is a top priority. A 24/7 call center will soon be inaugurated to address all concerns of people who have questions related to the vaccine.”

In another tweet he added, “The countries first ever Perception Management Initiative will be rolled out by the end of this month and the effects of which will be a game changer I assure. I am leaving at a time when the low transmission season is about to commence.”

He said that the polio program is a great preparation for the campaigns, starting from November to June 2020.

I am sure that the next person behind me will continue the mission of polio-free Pakistan, Babar Bin Atta said.

He added more, “Pakistan is in a position that will finally eradicate polio once and for all. The opportunity should be capitalized and should not be lost from here. I forever remain indebted to the love and respect all of you have offered. May Allah be our Guide and protector.”

It should be remembered that two months ago, a special anti-polio campaign was launched across the country under which 71 lac children were successfully vaccinated in 46 districts of the country.
