TN - Hindu Mahasabha leader expresses ire over item number actresses
A Hindu Mahasabha leader, sparking an outrage, has demanded today that actresses performing item numbers in films be branded as wench. Navin Tyagi, general secretary of the U.P Hindu Mahasabha, also sought a ban on wearing of skirts and jeans by girl students in schools and even said they should not be allowed to carry mobile phones. "They are spreading filth in society," Mr Tyagi said, adding he will take the matter to the Supreme Court. This remark was condemned by political parties and the National Commission for Women(NCW).
