‘Wearing ripped jeans is leading to societal breakdown’: Uttarakhand CM

  • | Wednesday | 17th March, 2021

Pointing out an instance, the Uttarakhand CM said he had once met a woman, who used to run an NGO, wearing ripped denim. He wondered what message such a woman must be giving to society while trying to help them as the head of an NGO.

Newly-appointed Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat has said that wearing of ripped jeans is leading to societal breakdown. Speaking at a workshop on substance abuse on Tuesday, the BJP leader described this as a case of "bad example" being set for the children by their parents. He went on to claim that such behaviour was also leading to substance abuse or consumption of drugs.

“Kainchi se sanskaar (culture by scissors) — showing bare knees, wearing ripped denim and looking like rich kids — these are the values being given now. Where is this coming from, if not at home? What is the fault of teachers or schools? Where am I taking my son, showing his knees and in tattered jeans? Girls are no less, showing their knees. Is this good? All of this, in a mad race of westernisation. While the western world follows us, doing yoga … covering their body properly. And we run towards nudity,” Rawat was quoted as saying at the workshop organised by the Uttarakhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights in Dehradun.

Pointing out an instance, the Uttarakhand CM said he had once met a woman, who used to run an NGO, wearing ripped denim. He wondered what message such a woman must be giving to society while trying to help them as the head of an NGO.

“A child who is taught the right culture at home, no matter how modern he becomes, will never fail in life,” the CM said.

Pointing out how parents’ behaviour was leading to the consumption of drugs and liquor by children, Rawat said the use of such things is due to the environment in which children are raised. He asked what impact would it have on children in homes where parents ask their kids to take out liquor bottles from cabinets for guests?
