The Assembly speaker said in response to the complaint that ‘informal dressing is not allowed inside the house and gallery’. He said that decorum needs to be followed. This is the usual practice. The official said, “We are adhering to the procedures followed by Parliament on dressing. Only exception is given to religious symbols. The ‘Kallimundu’ is an informal dress and so the person was not allowed.”

The complainant said it is the Malabar’s custom to wear a kallimandu and a white shirt during auspicious occasions. He said that if there are any rules against people visiting the house wearing kallimandu, these needs to be amended soon.
