BJP has a large number of workers, especially at the village level which is useful only during elections. The party has decided to inculcate a sense of encouragement aiming the party workers to make plans for the welfare of the society and the nation.

Keeping in view, the party has decided on the 'Malnutrition free India' and 'Disease-free India' scheme.

There were three parameters for malnutrition in India. The Union Health Minister has different parameters, Ministry for Women and Child Development has a different parameter for malnutrition while World Health Organisation has different parameters for it. The party has decided on following the WHO's parameter.

On the basis of the parameter, the party's health volunteers would make a 'health card' of the children upto the age group of six years and release it on the 'Nammo app'.The children who will be tagged 'unhealthy or malnourished' under the parameter will be referred to the district administration.
