It might sound unbelievable but it is true. The valuable time of Tamil Nadu assembly was spent to discuss on what the likes of Shriya and Namitha should or should not wear in public places. On Monday (Feb 28), Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK), a partner of the ruling alliance, launched an attack against the way the actresses dress in public places and on television.

PMK Chief Whip T. Velmurugan started the debate on which TN assembly spent considerable time. The debate was revolving around the dressing of the Kollywood girls and the "obscene shows" aired by the Tamil television channels. Some even suggested that the government should impose a dress code after seeing Shreya, and another Tamil actress Namita (left), in "revealing" clothes.

Some members went to the extent of suggesting that action must be taken so that public decency is maintained. Velmurugan launched an attack against Tamil television channels, including 'Kalaignar TV', accusing them of "airing vulgar programmes which could spoil younger generation".

He referred to Namitha's wardrobe in the popular dance show Maanada Mayilada on Kalaignar TV, where she is one of the judges for the programme. He also drew the attention of the august house towards Shriya's "improper" attires at various events including the recent 'Sivaji' silver jubilee function attended by Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi.

The Electricity Minister Arcot Veerasamy said that no dress code could be enforced through a law. "All that we can do is to advise them to be appropriately dressed for the occasion" the Minister said.

The debate was over after the Minister's reply but the fallout of the debate might have an impact on the freedom of the actresses to dress the way they like to.

aww, my sentiments exactly -- but on second thoughts,
such discussions could lead to the status of Tamil
serials which occupy the drawing rooms of innumerable
households and stress on the need of a censor body for
TV also??? If that is the outcome, than I do not mind this - It is important to have a mentally sound public and
it is the duty of the Governing body to make sure that
weeding is done at the right time. Hello, do we see a censor board for the TV in the near future????

Yes but censoring people's right to wear clothes??? Please, this is a step towards dictatorship. What next? No short hair? No high heels? No make-up?
Who is going to do the weeding? Someone from that political party? Someone like me?

This is very dangerous ground.

oh no, nothing like that - just the violence to be stopped, quality in serials-
some little logic etc., - i just said that the direction could be towards this -
I am not a control freak and if my post suggested any thing like that, it was
not intended..

they are kaarths, they are.... they have now made it compulsory that women will also wear veshti and kurta.  so now in TN nothing else will be sold except veshti and kurta....and that is the new unisex code of dressing in TN.  madisaar maamis will also wear the same...and salute is for ramraj!!!LOLLOL
