Banwari Lal Singhal, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Alwar city constituency wrote a letter to the chief secretary asking for skirts to be banned in school uniforms.
From the letter:
“Girls either walk to school or wait for school buses at various points in Alwar. That is when they face lewd comments from mischievous elements,”
“It should be prohibited keeping in view the rise of social crimes against women. The school should have pant-shirts or salwar suits as uniforms for girl students,”
With legislators like this, is it any wonder that crimes against women continue to rise?
