Actor-turned Trinamool Congress MLA Chiranjit Chakraborty today sought to play down the controversy created over his statement on women’s attire saying it was not put in proper perspective in a section of the media.

“I have expressed my personal views to reporters on this for about 10 to 15 minutes. But if any media or anybody puts only a line from there,it could mean something different. Moreover,reaction on that by others has been creating further miscommunication. I never tried to hurt anybody,” Chiranjit told PTI.

Chiranjit,who had gone to Barasat police station to enquire into the progress of investigation into an eve-teasing case,on Saturday said women should be conscious about what they wear,“as all dresses are not appropriate for everywhere and sometimes some dresses can look provocative. Fashion is always under evolution,but its application should be changed with the time and place to make it more meaningful”.

Meanwhile,the state Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya criticised Chiranjit for his comment describing it as “uncalled for”. “He can’t give a guideline on the dress code for women. It is absolutely their personal matter,” Bhattacharya said.
