The inmates at the Jajarkot Jail have submitted suggestions on the initial draft of the new constitution.
The inmates had demanded the arrangement of solar bulbs in the prison, availability of the newspapers, periodicals and radio and healthy food among others for them.
They furnished the suggestions when the UCPN (Maoist) Standing Committee member and the Constituent Assembly (CA) member Shakti Bahadur Basnet reached them for the same.
According to CA member Basnet, the jailbirds had pressed for the provision in the constitution, assuring the availability of the basic needs in the prison.
They also urged the government to penalize the guilty in accordance to the crime and its nature.
CA member Basnet, in response, assured the inmates that he would spare no efforts to incorporate their demands ‘as it is’ in the constitution, it was shared. RSS
