Authorities have announced that they will be planting 4,000 Tulsi plants in the premises of the Birsa Munda Central Jail, which is located in Ranchi.

Hamid Akhtar, the superintendent of the Birsa Munda Central Jail (Ranchi) said:

Prisoners and jail staff are consuming more Tulsi leaves these days to boost their immunity power as a result of which leaves have gone missing from most of the Tulsi plants already there. So, we have planned to plant 4,000 more Tulsi plants soon.

He said that each prisoner will be asked to plant one Tulsi plant. Not only that, but the prisoners will also be responsible for taking care of their own holy basil plants.

Superintendent Akhtar added:

 Right now, no single nursery has such a large number of Tulsi saplings. So we are trying to purchase them from different nurseries.

There are around 3,604 prisoners lodged inside the Birsa Munda Central Jail as of writing this article.

Out of the 3,604 prisoners, 150 have tested positive for the deadly disease.
