Speaking on the occasion, Naidu said: "The aim of the POSHAN Anthem is to inspire people to join the movement to fight the scourge of malnutrition."

He also opined that "the anthem may be sung in as many regional languages as possible so that it becomes a song of the people. The overriding priority of all legislators, administrators, civil society activists, and citizens must be to ensure that all children of the country get the best possible childhood."

The Vice President of India congratulated both artists and hoped that through this song, the message of nutrition would reach each and every corner of the country.
