BJP MLA from Alwar city constituency has asked the government to put a ban on skirts as uniform. He believes that this is also a reason behind increased cases of sexual harassment.
In his letter to the chief secretary, Banwari Lal Singhal, demanded that girl students be made to wear salwar suits or shirts and trousers as uniform to reduce chances of their being subjected to lewd comments or harassment.
He urged the government to prohibit private schools from making girls wear skirts as uniform keeping in view the rise of social crimes against women. He argued that the proposed school uniform would save the students from extreme weather conditions too.
