'Mamata showing legs in saree inappropriate': Dilip Ghosh defends bermuda remark

West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh defended his ‘wear bermuda’ remark on CM Mamata Banerjee. Ghosh said that it is inappropriate for a woman to show her legs wearing a saree. The BJP leader was speaking to the media in Kharagpur. “She (Mamata) is our Chief Minister. We expect her to act appropriately, befitting Bengal's culture. A woman showing her legs in a saree is inappropriate. I found it objectionable so I protested,” he said. Ghosh had made the controversial remark while addressing a rally in Purulia on Tuesday. He had said that Mamata should wear Bermuda shorts to show her plastered leg. BJP and the ruling TMC are at loggerheads in poll-bound West Bengal. Elections to the 294-member state Assembly will be held in eight phases starting March 27. The final round of polling will take place on April 29, counting of votes on May 2.
