Priyanka Gandhi took a dig at the BJP leaders over the ‘ripped jeans’ controversy.

Priyanka Gandhi has tweeted pictures of PM Narendra Modi and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari in khaki shorts.

Priyanka Gandhi captioned the pictures, “Oh my God!!! Their knees are showing.”

On Tuesday, the new Chief Minister of Uttarakhand – Tirath Singh Rawat had stoked a controversy over his derogatory remarks on women wearing torn jeans.

Uttarakhand CM Tirath Singh Rawat said that due to a lack of values, young people, including women, follow strange fashion trends these days by wearing jeans ripped at the knees.

“Showing bare knees by wearing ripped jeans just to look like rich kids is the value given now which is just a race towards westernisation when the western world today are following us. Ripped jeans pave the way for societal breakdown and is a bad example for children,” the Uttarakhand CM had said.

Rawat’s derogatory comments on women wearing torn jeans has invited a lot of criticism.

On social media, the hashtag #RippedJeansTwitter has been trending since Thursday and many women are posting pictures of themselves wearing these ripped jeans.
