India's Prime Minister, Mr. Manmohan Singh has stated that this, “gives us hope that we can finally eradicate polio not only from India but from the face of the Earth.”
It also marks a day of hope for all children of the world.

From a 125 countries where polio was active and crippling millions of children, we are down to three countries. We are at the last mile in eradicating this terrible disease. We have to do everything possible to do just that
