Shimla: With the Congress party supporting Muslim girls' insistence to wear hijab in educational institutions in Karnataka, a party lawmaker in Himachal Pradesh has favoured wearing only uniform in schools and colleges.
In a Facebook post in Hindi, Congress MLA Vikramaditya Singh of the Shimla (Rural) assembly seat said that one should wear only the uniform of that educational institute while going there.
The dignity of the educational institutes would be maintained only then, he added.
