Prisoners are for the first time afforded an opportunity of visiting Temple Trees and meeting the President.
The special function organized to mark the Prisoners’ Welfare Day is now underway. Thousands of inmates are participating in the function. The Government has planned to launch several programmes identifying the problems faced by the family members of the prison inmates throughout the country. An aim of the programme is to absorb them into society in a more beneficial manner. Views of the prisoners will be entertained in this connection. It is believed that the function being held today under the Patronage of the President is one step towards that direction.
