PM Modi seeks individuals’s participation in efforts to eradicate malnutrition

New Delhi[India], August 28 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged the individuals to take part within the authorities’s efforts to eradicate malnutrition from the nation as a part of the ‘Poshan Maah’ celebrated yearly in September.

The Prime Minister mentioned the efforts for social consciousness play an vital function in tackling the challenges of malnutrition.

PM Modi made the remarks in the course of the 92nd episode of Mann Ki Baat.

“The month of September is dedicated to festivals as well as a big campaign related to nutrition. We celebrate the Poshan Maah every year from the 1st to the 30th of September. Many creative and diverse efforts are being made all over the country against malnutrition,” he mentioned.

“Efforts for social awareness play an important role in tackling the challenges of malnutrition. I would urge all of you in the coming nutrition month, to take part in the efforts to eradicate malnutrition,” PM Modi added.

Highlighting the usage of know-how and public participation within the vitamin marketing campaign, the Prime Minister laid down the steps taken by the federal government on this path.

“From providing mobile devices to millions of Anganwadi workers in the country, a Poshan Tracker has also been launched to monitor the accessibility of Anganwadi services. In all the Aspirational Districts and the states of the North East, 14 to 18-year-old daughters have also been brought under the purview of the POSHAN Abhiyaan,” he mentioned.

“The solution to the malady of malnutrition is not limited just to these steps – in this fight, many other initiatives also play an important role. For example, take the Jal Jeevan Mission…this mission is also going to have a huge impact in making India malnutrition-free,” PM Modi added. (ANI)
