With an exclusive radio system for prisoners, “Radio Ujala Punjab” was inaugurated today by Praveen Kumar Sinha, IPS, ADGP Prisons, Punjab at Central Jail, Ludhiana. This initiative will be replicated in six more prisons in coming days. Balkar Singh, Superintendent, Central Jail, Ludhiana was also present on the occasion.Radio system in prisons is being set-up in association with India Vision Foundation, which is a pioneer in conducting various reformatory projects in prisons. As a source of motivation, meditation & reformation, prison radio is set to change the lives of many who have, by chance or fate, landed in the prisons.
Pertinently, radio will be an internal system of the jail which will be run by prison inmates only. Inmates of all seven prisons who will work as radio jockeys underwent a training of three days organized by India Vision Foundation."The prime objective is to rehabilitate and correct the anti-social elements. Prisoners face alienation and isolation from the society. We hope that providing them with a conducive atmosphere and enough welfare opportunities inside the jail will help to keep these prisoners away from the society of crime", ADGP Prisons said.
