Chief Minister’s Comment On Ripped Jeans Irked Internet !!

BJP leader Tirath Singh Rawat who was sworn as the Chief minister of Uttarkhand last week, came up with a statement against a woman who was wearing ripped jeans and boots while she was on a flight with her children. He also said that she works in an Non-government organisation, goes out in the society and has two children and wondered what values she would give them.

“If such women go out in the society to meet people and solve their problems, what kind of message are we giving out to society, to our kids? It all starts at home. What we do, our kids follow. A child who is taught the right culture at home, no matter how modern he becomes, will never fail in life.” he said while elaborating about his opinion about the woman wearing ripped jeans.
