Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said that Prison Link 'Sawajan' (relatives) service has been introduced to give peace to the prisoners. In this, the prisoners can communicate with their relatives and friends.

He made this remark while he came to the Keraniganj Central Jail to change the breakfast menu of the prisoners.

Asaduzzaman Khan said, if the prisoners get mental peace from prison, their crime trends will be reduced. The service has been started as a pilot project in Tangail. In phases, the service will be introduced across the country.

He said the prison is a reformatory. Prisoners are being trained in 38 events, according to prisoners demand variety. As a result, after the release from the prison, they will get a chance to be modified instead of getting involved in crime again.

At this time the minister changed the 200 years old British style morning breakfast in prison. From today, in the morning breakfast manure is: Bhuna Khichuri with vegetable curry in two days a week, vegetables-bread in 4 days, and Halua-Bread in the remaining one day. Earlier, bread and molasses were given as breakfast.
