Sona Mohapatra also posted a couple of photos of her wearing a ripped T-shirt. "I don’t wear jeans owing to the humidity & heat here but happy for this ripped T shirt with my संस्कारी घुटना’s showing!.. & #GirlsWhoWearRippedJeans don’t need anyone’s permission in #India . We are the land of the glorious Konark, Khajurao, Modhera, Thirumayam, Virupaksha!", she wrote.
At an event Rawat had said, "Wearing ripped jeans and showing knees in the race towards Westernization is the lesson being taught to kids these days. Where is this coming from?” He related a story about meeting a mother wearing ripped jeans saying. “This woman runs an NGO and goes out into society like this? What kind of culture does that propagate?”
