The prisoners of Lalitpur's Nakhu jail have presented a list of demands to the Home Ministry. If fulfilled, these demands will make living in prison so much easier that the unemployed might actually prefer it. The 29 prisoners have requested a high school, hospital, gym, library, computer training and facilities, better food and visiting hours. They have also asked that the guards and other staff in the jail be paid as much as the prison officers and special allowances given to prisoners on public holidays. The jail must be better maintained and the prisoners be taught technical skills said the list titled Prisoners' Hopes. It also included some strong political demands. The prisoners have threatened to schedule protest marches, meetings and slogans in the jail if the demands are not fulfilled.
