“Dhoti ban an insult to Constitution, Tamil culture”: TN CM

Chennai: J Jayalalithaa castigated the “sartorial despotism” of private clubs over their stringent dress code after the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association club denied entry to Justice D Hariparanthaman of Madras high court and senior lawyers R Gandhi and G R Swaminathan for wearing dhotis to a book release function. “This is an act of insult to Constitution, democratic traditions, Tamil civilisation and culture. I strongly condemn this act, which is not in line with TNCA laws,” she said. “To bring an end to such practices, a new law would be enacted in this session. If any club engages in similar practices, licences given to them would be cancelled."
