No problem with jeans if they are not “Torn”, says Uttarakhand CM
| Saturday | 20th March, 2021
Rawat told the media that he had commented that nowadays children bring a costly jean home and then cut it with a scissor.
He had only talked about the environment at home and this applies to him as well, Mr Rawat said.
If we inculcate good values and discipline in children, they will never fail in future, the Chief Minister added, stressing that he had made the comment at a programme held to keep the children away from intoxicants and other evils.
Describing himself as a man from a rural background, Rawat on Friday said whenever his pant was torn in schooldays, he feared that his teacher would scold him. Due to discipline and values, we used to cover it with a patch, he said.
Rawat had drawn flak after at an event earlier this week he said youngsters follow strange fashion trends due to a lack of values and consider themselves to be big shots after wearing jeans ripped at the knees. Women also follow such trends.
Rawat then went on to describe the attire of a woman who sat next to him on a flight. He described her as wearing boots, jeans ripped at the knees, bangles in her hands and two children travelling with her. He also said she runs an NGO, goes out in society and has two children and wondered what values she would give them.
