Sahu caste leaders put dress code for women in Chhattisgarh,They protest...

My name is Jayanti Sahu. I am calling from village Panditarai in Ambagarh Chowki block of Rajnandgaon district in Chhattisgarh. Sahu samaj in my village has decided on a dress code for women and if anyone does not obey that she will have to pay Rs 501 as punishment. I protest it. Why there is no dress code for men? We are free women and we are free to dress as we wish and we need your help for the same. For more Jayanti Ji can be reached at 08349338277
