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.

It is the responsibility of the women of our country to save our cultural heritage, save our identity, save our costumes,” she said in a statement.

On seeing the outrage he caused, On Friday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat said he apologises for the remark if it has hurt anybody. But at the same time, he repeated his objection to ripped jeans, saying he has no problem with jeans with but wearing “torn” ones is “not right”.

“As a Periyarist, I strongly opposed what Tirath Singh Rawat had said about ripped jeans and women showing their knees. Divya Sathyaraj also stated that though many asked her not to post pics of her wearing shot or ripped jeans as an aspiring politician, she will never project an image that is not her.

“A lot of people advised me against posting images of mine in shorts and ripped jeans on my instagram stating that an aspiring politician should be seen in a cotton saree.l will never project an image that is not me. I truly believe every woman should have the right to wear what she wants…Mr.Tirath Singh Rawat, STOP TELLING US WHAT TO WEAR!!I will wear my ripped jeans.” her statement read.
