    The Prime Minister said in his address that due to lack of education, conception at a young age, lack of information, lack of hygiene, the results that should have been achieved in the fight against malnutrition have not been achieved yet. There were some attempts at different levels of the country but their scope was either limited or scattered in pieces.

    He said that I had started a new endeavor in the country when I got a chance to serve the country in 2014. We moved forward with integrated thinking and moving with a holistic approach. We finished our strategy and started working on our strategies. Good work is being done to tackle malnutrition. Now nutritious crops are being promoted in the country, which is high in protein, iron, zinc, etc.

    But the most important thing is that considering the age limit of girls, the marriage of girls will stop at a young age. Even today, child marriages continue in rural areas. Parents believe in fulfilling their duties as soon as possible by marrying their daughters. But the government fails to perform its duties. The Prime Minister needs to listen to those who cannot write letters to him from her village, who are still unable to touch the 18-year-old age limit.
