“No ‘veshtis’ please” TNCA club to offending Judge, lawyers

Chennai: Even as the TN government-run Co-optex observes ‘Veshti {Dhoti} Day’ every year to promote the ‘desi’ attire, Justice Hariparanthaman of Madras High Court and senior lawyers, R Gandhi and G R Swaminathan were denied entry to TNCA Club, as they were veshti-clad. On the occasion of the book release function of “Legal Fraternity Embraced Me” by Justice T S Arunachalam, they were stopped at the club hall door “solely on the ground that they were wearing a Veshti” in contravention of the club’s dress code. Agitated advocates and politicians have sought governmental intervention in the issue. DMK leader M K Stalin raised it in the TN assembly.
