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