Tirath Singh Rawat Controversy
Tirath Singh Rawat caused controversy when he stated that he was astonished to see a woman heading an NGO while wearing tattered jeans and was concerned about the example she was establishing for society. Priyanka Gandhi slammed Rawat for his sexist remarks and uploaded photographs of Narendra Modi and Nitin Gadkari wearing white shirts and khaki shorts (RSS uniform).
He remarked, “Today, ripped jeans are highly fashionable among women… Is it our culture?” According to him, children learn about culture through their parents. How will they learn culture if their parents wear tattered jeans? He queried. The contentious remark was made by the CM while addressing a toddler drug abuse session within the state.
Tirath Singh intimately described the attire of the woman who sat next to him on the journey. According to him, the woman described herself as an NGO worker and was travelling with her children. He asked, “You run an NGO, wear knee-ripped jeans, go about in society, and have children with you; what values will you teach?”
Rawat referred to ripped jeans as “kainchi wala sanskar” (scissor culture), claiming that it is taught that one cannot be considered wealthy without ripped pants and bare knees.
Later, #RippedJeansTwitter began trending on Twitter, and images inundated the microblogging site. While few identified the CM in their remarks, the majority indirectly criticised him by stating that “clothes do not define character” and “no one should be judged based on their appearance.”
Later, Rawat apologised for his inflammatory comments and emphasised that he has no issue with jeans. However, he reiterated his objections to ripped jeans, arguing that wearing them is “inappropriate.” Rawat has also stated that in the future, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be considered an avatar of Lord Rama and Krishna. He was condemned by leaders of the opposing party in Congress, who asserted that he was engaging in sycophancy with his words.
