"For the people who are here in prison, this is the time to introspect and self-analyse. If you committed a crime, leave it behind. Rather, you should atone for your crimes," he said.

He pointed out while the jail has good facilities for the prisoners. People should realise that a moment of anger can ruin their lives.

He emphasised the importance of rehabilitation of prisoners in order to help them emerge as better persons and gain meaningful livelihood after their release.

"Prisoners can read literature. Regular events of Yoga can be organised. Prisoners should be given a chance to change themselves and shed their criminal mindset through education. Prisons should function as centres that help one change himself for good and take up meaningful employment and when they come out of it," he said.
