The statement made by Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat on women wearing torn jeans is getting criticism all around. Many political personalities have also objected to the word of the BJP leader, in which he said that women wearing torn jeans do not create the ‘right atmosphere at home for children. Now Bihar’s former CM and RJD leader Rabri Devi has shared her reaction.
On Thursday, he wrote in tweeting- “Deciding identity and rites based on clothes is a sign of petty and frivolous mentality. Is a person of an anti-women hate mindset honoured by giving him the post of Chief Minister in the best honour BJP?
कपड़ों के आधार पर पहचान और संस्कार तय करना ओछी और तुच्छ मानसिकता का परिचायक है।
क्या महिला विरोधी घृणित मानसिकता के व्यक्ति को सर्वश्रेष्ठ मान भाजपा में मुख्यमंत्री जैसा पद देकर सम्मानित किया जाता है? https://t.co/Chc0Uecynm

Statement of Tirath Singh Rawat
A few days after becoming CM of Uttarakhand, Tirath Singh Rawat asked, ‘What rites are women wearing torn jeans?’ I have made headlines by making a statement. At an event organised by Uttarakhand State Child Protection Protection Commission in Dehradun. He said, “I was coming from Jaipur by plane one day.
A sister-in-law was sitting next to me. I looked down at them were gumboots. When I looked up, the jeans were torn from the knee. 2 children were with them. The woman runs an NGO. You go amid society. Will you be cremated? ”
The new CM also claimed that parents wearing torn jeans set a ‘bad example’ for children in the home and, at the same time, such behaviour also ‘promotes the use of drugs’.
The BJP leader said- “Now values are being given to show bare knees by wearing torn jeans to look like rich children, which is a race towards westernisation whereas today the western world is following us. Parents are wearing ripped jeans setterriblebad example for children.
Women leaders criticise
Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan said that ‘such a statement does not suit the CM of a state and he cannot decide with clothes who is cultured and who is not. The former actress said that ‘this is terrible thinking which encourages crimes against women today.
The same Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi and TMC MP Mahua Moitra has also lashed out at her statements via Twitter.
