Improperly dressed MP ordered out
TNA Parliamentarian Thangeswari Kathiraman was ordered to withdraw
immediately from Parliament for the remainder of the day yesterday as
her dress was improper and unparliamentary.
Deputy Serjeant-at-Arms Naren Fernando ordered her to withdraw
immediately from the chamber after she was seen attired in a Salwar
Kameez dress which is inappropriate with the Parliament’s dress code for
female members. According to Parliamentary tradition, female MPs are
required to dress in sari. Having explained the situation, the Deputy
Serjeant-at-Arms accompanied her out of the chamber.
