(IANS) No new case of polio had been reported in the country in the last one and a half years, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Wednesday.

Addressing the nation on India's 66th Independence Day, the prime minister said: "India does not figure in the list of countries affected by this disease."

Th World Health Organisation (WHO) took India, which in 2009 had more polio cases than any other nation in the world, off its polio endemic list early this year after not a single case of the crippling disease was reported for over a year.

India, Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan are the four countries where polio is still endemic.
