Several MLAs have been uncomfortable by the entire scenario and demand the removal of the picture including Rupjyoti Kurmi, from Mariani, Roseline Tirkey, from Sarupathar, and Nandita Das from Boko, as being the discussion reported by India Today in the recent legislature assembly.
“The government should preserve the respect of the Assamese society. Frock is not an Assamese attire and the calendar pictures were not sober at all. The government should have known how to preserve the prestige of the Assamese society, instead, they could have used the traditional mekhela chador. This is the reason we have protested against the calendar,” told Rupjyoti Kurni to Times8 as being reported by the Indian Today.

Meanwhile, the chairman of Assam tourist development corporation, Jayanta Malla Baruah stands on the idea that there was nothing objectionable about the dress and the entire fuss is being created by the Congress party to gain publicity in the veil of socialism. The state tourism minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma supported the corporation saying, “A section of Congress legislators in Assam are trying to get cheap publicity out of the issue.”
Priyanka Chopra has been recently entered into various controversies. She was being criticized for wearing an abrupt dress during her meet with the PM and also he was targeted for remaining shut during Assam floods. Well, India is a democratic country where one is allowed to wear what he/she desires to. And also, it is not your dress but your speech, not your language but your etiquettes that portray your culture. No dress can demean our nation when the soul that it wears is pure and empathetic.
