"The government will pardon 30 days of total jail period of eligible prisoners lodged in various jails in the state," the chief minister said Monday (September 3) night, after visiting the Bhopal Central Jail. Chouhan dedicated newly-constructed open jails in Indore and Sagar through video conferencing at the Janmashtami programme organised in the Bhopal Central Jail.

"The ideal situation will be the society becoming free of crime and number of jails reduced. Nobody is a habitual criminal. Crime takes place because of adverse conditions and behavioural disorder," he said.
