Prime Minister Narendra Modi while holding conversation with the Anganwadi and Asha workers under the National Nutrition Month lauded the digital skill of Anganwadi worker Phoolkali Prajapti of Panna district.

Modi said that questions are raised in the Lok Sabha in connection to use of mobile in remote rural areas and the concept of Digital India. But the Anganwadi and Asha workers of Panna district have proved that Panna district is actually like a diamond in the country.

Notably, Anganwadi worker Phoolkali Prajapati of Lohar village in Gunnor block of Panna district, while holding direct conversation with the Prime Minister, expressed gratitude towards him for providing a mobile and said that work has become easy after obtaining the common application software. Earlier, 11 registers had to be filled and now we record children’s weight and height on mobile easily. It has become easy to apprise people about the nutrition through video with clarity.

PM Narendra Modi in context to this conversation said that our sisters have shown a way to make the new generation well nourished by using digital technology through efficient use of mobile phones. He mentioned that use of smart phone for nutrition and health at the far place like Panna is a symbol of success of the Digital India campaign.

Minister for Women and Child Development Archana Chitnis said that as a result of the potential for successful use of mobile app in the anganwadi workers, 40 per cent entries are being recorded in the National Nutrition Month from Madhya Pradesh.

The Anganwadi workers of the state are digital friendly. Chitnis along with the Anganwadi workers watched the address of the Prime Minister and also addressed the anganwadi and Asha workers present.
