Speaking at the inauguration of the sixth, three-day All India Prison Duty Meet in Ahmedabad, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the view with which jails are seen in society needs to be changed. “Not every person jailed is criminal by nature, sometimes it is the circumstances which force their involvement. But it is a necessary process to keep society functional,” he added.
The sixth All India Prison Duty Meet is being held at TransStadia in Ahmedabad’s Kankaria, from September 4-6. It is a biennial event organised by the Bureau of Police Research and Development. Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghavi attended the event. Police departments of around 19 states and Union Territories are expected to attend the three-day event.

“When the first Prison Meet was organised in Gujarat, Narendra Modi was the chief minister and I was the Home Minister of Gujarat,” said Amit Shah. He stressed that the jail administration is responsible for the re-induction of those who are not habitual criminals into society.
“More than a thousand players are here to participate in various sports. The exchange of success stories from various jails will motivate all,” the home minister said, adding that PM Modi has given the mantra of Fit India to the country, and the jail administration should take this message to the jails as well.
“I suggest all the states implement the new jail manual, which is only implemented in 11 states as of now,” Shah said.
The Home Minister will also participate in the curtain raiser of the 36th National Games, 2022, and the closing ceremony of the 11th Khel Mahakumbh. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 11th Khel Mahakumbh at Sardar Patel stadium in Ahmedabad in March this year.
The 36th National Games will be held in Gujarat from September 27 to October 10. The inaugural function of the National Games will be held at the Narendra Modi stadium at Motera. Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Gandhinagar and Bhavnagar will host 36 different games as part of the event.
The games are now being organised after a gap of seven years. The National Games’ emblem features the Statue of Unity of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and the Asiatic Lion of Gir.
