What is Prime Minister Matru Shakti Yojana?
With this plan, we will be able to stand firmly against malnutrition.
The mother and child should not be deprived of nutritious food during pregnancy. Sometimes the pregnant mother and child remain malnourished due to poor financial situation. It directly affects the health of mother and child. That is why the government of Gujarat took the initiative and started the Mukhyamantri Matru Shakti Yojana. There is provision for the provision of nutritious and healthy foods to pregnant women. The goal of Mukhyamantri Matru Shakti Yojana is to provide nutritious food during pregnancy to any race or poor woman. An 811 crore forecast has been booked for this program.
The 270 days of a woman’s pregnancy began and the 730 days from the birth of the child to the age of 2, ie a total of 1000 days, were called the “First Opportunity Window”.
At the inauguration of Mukhyamantri Matru Shakti Yojana, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said:
The rapid growth of women, their empowerment is equally important for the rapid growth of 21st century India. “Today India plans and makes decisions taking into account the needs and aspirations of women,” Vadodara added.
It is a suitable city for the celebration of Matri Shakti as it is a mother-in-law city. “We tried to give more opportunities in the decision-making space for the promotion of women in Gujarat at every level. Recognizing women’s management potential, sisters play a leading role in many village projects.
