"Women in foreign countries wear jeans and T-shirts, dance with other men and even drink liquor, but that is their culture. It's good for them, but not for India, where only our traditions and culture are ok," Urban Administration & Development minister Gaur said when asked about controversies over women's dress.


However, he said, "Let women consider what is good and bad for them".

Recently, Madhya Pradesh industries minister, Kailash Vijaywargiya had drawn flak for advising women not to cross their "Laxmanrekha".
