Recently the Congress legislators, including Nandita Das and Rupjyoti Kurmi raised objections during the ongoing session of the Assam legislative assembly to a photograph of Priyanka Chopra in ‘minimal clothes’ as featured in a calendar of the Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) and demanded that she be removed as the brand ambassador of Assam tourism. They felt, that her revealing clothes will bring defame to the culture of Assam state. Congress leader and Assam’s Leader of Opposition Debabrata Saikia said that it would have been better if brand ambassador wore traditional Assamese dress instead of a “frock”.
This isn’t the first time that Priyanka has come under attack for her dress sense. Last year, she was also trolled for sporting a tricolour scarf on the occasion of India’s 70th Independence Day.
