The ban was implemented by the college after some professors had a complaint that it was becoming an embarrassment in the class. College principal Angelo Menezes, commenting on the same had said that sleeveless and short clothes were not allowed on the campus. He had also added that apart from being vulgar at times, the ripped jeans also make a mockery of the poor.
Torn clothes are worn by poor as they don’t have many choices. This should not be made a fashion statement, he had said.
“Students should be a little more professional in their approach in college. A business school will never allow such clothes on the campus. Students can make use of all the fashion outside the college campus, he had further added.
