VIDEO: Babar Atta under fire for ‘favouring’ sister who refused polio drops for children


Prime Minister’s (PM) Focal Person on Polio Eradication Babar Atta on Saturday was criticised for promoting favouritism regarding the registering of a first information report (FIR) against his sister who had refused polio drops.

The matter blew up social media website Twitter after anchor Fareeha posted a clip of a brief interview with Atta regarding the countrywide ongoing polio campaign.

In the clip, Atta explains how he had to convince his sister, who is a doctor, to let her children be administered with polio drops.

However, the Twitterati was quick to jump on the fact that Atta’s sister was to booked as actor Fawad Khan was a few days earlier for the same reason, adding that the latter was not even in the country.

Social media users alleged that Atta had pulled off the case against the famous actor as a “publicity stunt”.
