Chandigarh: In a bizarre way to stop 'anti-national' elements, the Chandigarh administration has decided to ban short skirts in discotheques.
A policy called the "Controlling of Places of Public Amusement, 2016" came into effect on April 01, which directs bars in Chandigarh to shut by midnight instead of 2 am.
The policy also states that "scantily dressed women" or any "indecency" could lead to closure of discos.
The decision has evoked sharp reactions on social media.
Here is how Twitteratis reacted to the news:
Is the ruling just for women? If yes, the best way to protest is to send hairy men in skirts to the Chandigarh assembly. #Chandigarh

Short-skirts are attracting anti-national elements in #Chandigarh
Apparently some guys were heard singing, "Bomb lagdi mainu..." in discos.
