why did dadabhai norji used 'jail cost of living' to discuss the concept of poverty line when this can be done with other people of country?

Jail cost of living was an rough estimate of the cost of menu provided to jail inmates(adults).
He approximated poverty line to being 3/4th of the jail cost of living. Just an approach to be noted.
As jail food is the minimum bench mark food to be provided to free persons, think if person below poverty line is better off in jail than by suffering on roads.
