Raje govt revokes Dress Code in colleges order

Jaipur: Buckling under widespread protests, especially by students, the Vasundhara Raje dispensation in Rajasthan today revoked its recent controversial order on implementing a dress code for government-run colleges in the State.

The chief minister said the Directorate of College Education had issued the order to introduce uniforms in government colleges based on suggestions by student representatives.

It has been brought to my attention that many students are not happy with this decision. I have therefore asked that uniforms be made voluntary rather than compulsory, Raje tweeted.

We are here to provide our girls with whatever they require excelling in their education, she said.

On 4 March, the BJP government in Rajasthan had announced a dress code in state-run colleges from the academic year 2018-19, drawing protests from students and opposition Congress which dubbed it as an attempt to saffronise institutions.

The Commissionerate of College Education had then shot off a letter to principals of government colleges asking them to decide the colour of the dress for boys and girls and submit it by 12 March.

Dress code for boys included shirt, trousers, sweater (winters), shoes, socks and belt. For girls, it was salwar suit, dupatta, sweater or cardigan (winters), saree, shoes or sandals and socks.

The dress code has to be implemented in government colleges from academic session 2018-19. Principals are directed to decide dress colour with senior faculty members, student union representatives and to submit it by 12 March, the letter stated.

The Congress said it would oppose the decision and alleged the government was pursuing RSS agenda.

The government is working on the agenda of the RSS. They have changed school curriculum, distributed saffron cycles and are now bent on saffronising colleges. We will protest any such attempt, Congress chief whip in the state Govind Singh Dotasara had said.

The government had, however, maintained that the decision was being taken on the students’ demand.

The dress code was a demand of the students who have complained that outsiders enter college premises. There should be clarity on the identity of students. We have left it on the colleges to decide on the dress colour. We have not imposed any particular colour, state Higher Education minister Kiran Maheshwari had said.

माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी,

2018 में आपने कहा था कि कालाधन और बेनामी लेनदेन समाप्त करने के लिए आधार को संपत्ति से लिंक किया जाएगा

यदि 50,000₹ से अधिक लेनदेन पर आधार अनिवार्य करने के लिए कानून बन गया होता तो न शाहीन बाग होता, न दिल्ली दंगा और न किसान आंदोलन

@PMOIndia @narendramodi

गेस्ट हाउस कांड वालों के मुंह से दलितों के हित की बात अच्छी नहीं लगती

आप ही के अब्बाजान और उनके गुंडो ने मायावती जी पर हमला करवाया था ना ?

आपकी जानकारी हेतु प्रयागराज (इलाहाबाद नहीं) घटना पर पोलिस अपनी कार्यवाही तेजी से कर रही है । शायद यह दबंग भी आप ही के न हो ।

Akhilesh Yadav@yadavakhilesh

इलाहाबाद के फाफामऊ में दबंगों के द्वारा 4 दलितों की हत्या दलित विरोधी भाजपा सरकार पर एक और बदनुमा दाग़ है।

घोर निंदनीय!

उम्मीद है ये अपराधी बिना चश्मे के भी दिख जाएँगे…
