New Delhi: With India reporting no polio cases last year, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad Saturday said there will be zero tolerance for any new case and any case will be declared a public health emergency.Speaking at the launch of the National Pulse Polio Programme for 2012 by President Pratibha Patil, the health minister said that India is making history in its fight against polio."It is indeed a remarkable achievement that for the last one year, the country has remained completely free from polio without witnessing even a single case," he said.Noting India had a rather large share of global polio cases, he said that only two years ago, the country accounted for half of the total polio cases in the world."Seen against this back drop, today`s achievement of one full year of zero polio case is extremely impressive," he said.
