I was invited to Rajya Sabha in January 2016 to present to the Parliamentary Standing Committee (Department of Law and Justice) the findings of my Bihar Prisons report. The theme of the meeting was prisoners’ right to legal aid. With┬áMember Secretary of the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA), Member Secretary of the Bihar State Legal Services Authority (BSLSA), and other┬áMembers of Parliament in attendance, the Standing Committee took cognizance of my report.
