SILCHAR, Jan 6 � Susmita Dev, MP from Silchar said that mere enactment of laws will be insufficient to curb the burgeoning crimes across the nation. �What is necessary is a change of the mindset of people who commit the crimes,� she added.
While interacting with the inmates at the Central Jail here during a programme organised by ISKON Silchar celebrating the New Year 2015, Dev said that the need of the hour is to bring about a radical change in the mental psyche of the people who take up law in their own hands, mostly under compelling circumstances.
Stating that she had raised the issues affecting the women inmates across many jails in the country in the floor of the Parliament, Dev further said that she is consulting the national leaders and top administrative officials on how to control crimes against women in the country.
Director, Publicity and life member of ISKCON Silchar, Nirbhaya Das said that they are conducting programmes on a regular basis on the jail premises among the inmates to throw light on the spiritual aspects of life and there has been a phenomenal response to this initiative so far.
Meanwhile, as many as 25 inmates were given the Bhagwat Geeta while over 150 prisoners received tulsi garlands from ISKCON on the occasion.
