TDP MP asks women to dress in ‘dignified manner’


New Delhi, Aug 7:

A debate in the Lok Sabha on crime against women turned into a lesson on virtues of “dignified” dressing Thursday, when a TDP member asked women to dress properly in order to uphold Indian traditions.

During the discussion on rising crimes against women, Telugu Desam Party member Murli Mohan Maganti said: “To uphold the tradition of Indian culture, I would earnestly appeal to all my sisters and girls to dress in a dignified manner.”

“I would appeal to brothers to treat every woman as his own family member,” he said. “This would be a tribute to mother India.”

However, as his comments drew protests from women members, the TDP member retracted his statement.



  1. I am very shocked to hear the statement of South Indian Member of Parliament of TDP – an alliance partner of BJP, wherein he tried to justify that well dressed and modern dressed women are always prone to rapes. This is a shame and his outbursts should be condemned by one and all. I want to ask the people’s representative why there is no incidence of rape in Bollywood where most of the heroines roam in semi nude attires. Is there any answer ?
