Poshan Abhiyan is the Narendra Modi government’s ambitious nutrition scheme.
Not the first time
The Department of Fisheries, under the Ministry of Fisheries, had on 15 September tweeted an image of a 2015 media report on ‘fish therapy’ that could help people “curb depression risk”.

The Modi government has given increased importance to the fisheries sector, creating a separate Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairy, after coming to power for a second term.
The fisheries department earlier functioned under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare.
On 10 September, PM Modi launched a Rs 20,050-crore Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana in 21 states, including Bihar, which aimed to double fisheries exports, creating more employment opportunities and boosting the income of farmers.
Launching the scheme, the PM had said the goal was to double fish exports in the next three to four years.
The BJP had also launched a social media campaign earlier this month to promote the Poshan Maah.

Fishes contain Omega 3 fatty acids which is known worldwide to promote brain health and healthy ageing. Please know about such facts before trying to ridicule something based on personal ideologies. Science does not watch ideology. Try asking the brain not to accept Omega 3 benefits . Maybe that would help ! This is just ridiculous that the author would try to paint opinion over a scientific fact. or maybe the author does not understand Hindi well enough to know what “badhte umr ke prabhav” has a negative connotation to it .
Beyond embarrassing. Never seen such an aversion to science, rationality and intellect in the higher teachers of public life.
