Prisoner’s hunger strike in jail

Cherlapalli jail on the popular jails in Andhra Pradesh has witnessed a unique protest from pensioners today.

For the first time in jail history , a large number of prisoners had gone for a hunger strike demanding to release them . Most of them are sentenced for life time prison candidates.

In 2004 after YSR resign , A GO 190 was released by the government to release prisoners who are eligible based on their good behavior . But still  most of them are in jail waiting for release. To drag the government’s attention , prisoners have started this protest so that the might get chance to be out of jail at least for this Republic day.
