Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha MP and actress Jaya Bachchan came out with a scathing critique of Tirath Singh. Jaya Bachchan also said that this kind of mentality increases violence against women. ‘Public statements should be made only after good thought by those in high office. You say such things these days and it is this kind of bad thinking that is fueling crimes against women, ”said Jaya Bachchan.
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut also came on the scene asking you to model if you want to wear ripped jeans. ‘If you’re wearing ripped jeans for a cool look, dress like in my pictures. Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter to share her three pictures.
Rawat made the controversial remarks while attending a function on Tuesday. The CM said that today’s youth have lost their values and are following strange fashion trends. He added that women are considered great when it comes to wearing knee-length ripped jeans and that women also follow such trends.
They go to the store to buy such jeans. Rawat said that if he did not get such, he would cut the jeans with scissors. Protests against Rawat’s statement have been rising across India in recent days. Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi and Delhi Women’s Commission chairperson Swati Maliwal also came out against the statement.
