Uttarakhand CM appalled by social worker's ripped jeans, feels 'she is unfit to give values'

Dehradun (Uttrakhand), Mar 17 (ANI): In remarks that could create uproar, new Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat expressed his shock over a woman, who he met during a flight, wearing ripped jeans and was a social worker by profession. Holding parents responsible for westernisation of young children, Rawat said, “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 knees and in tattered jeans? Women are not any much less, displaying their knees. Is that good?” Devotees at Kumbh to be showered with flowers from copters on Mahashivratri.
