Itanagar: New Arunachal Pradesh Governor P B Acharya on Monday exhorted inmates of Jullang district jail to reform themselves into better persons.

He gave a patient hearing to the problems and challenges faced by the inmates and directed the jail authority to provide basic necessary items, including games & sports items, a Raj Bhawan communiqué informed.
“Games and sports activities help in reducing mental tension and also assist the inmates to come out of their mental trauma,” he said and directed the jail authority to provide, free legal aids and all other relevant provisions to the inmates to be provided by the government.
