PTI, JAIPUR: Buckling under widespread protests, especially by students, the Vasundhara Raje dispensation in Rajasthan on Tuesday revoked its recent controversial order on implementing a dress code for government run colleges in the state.

The chief minister said the Directorate of College Education had issued the order to introduce uniforms in government colleges based on suggestions by student representatives.

“It has been brought to my attention that many students are not happy with this decision. I have therefore asked that uniforms be made voluntary rather than compulsory,” Raje tweeted.

We are here to provide our girls with whatever they require to excel in their education, she said.

On March 4, the BJP government in Rajasthan had announced a dress code in state-run colleges from the academic year 2018-19, drawing protests from students and opposition Congress which dubbed it as an attempt to “saffronise” institutions.
