An official handout said the order would remain effective till May 16. It said the authorities had decided to take action against those refusing vaccination to their children against polio. There were reports that most of the nomad families moving across the district were refusing to administer polio drops to their children. The handout said the district authorities had sought identification of potential entry points of nomadic population. It said stern action would be taken against the persons refusing to get vaccinated children against polio.
