<p>After widespread condemnation of the diktat on college uniforms, the Rajasthan government has made it voluntary.</p>
<p>Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Tuesday announced that uniforms in government colleges will be made voluntary instead of compulsory.</p>
<p>She tweeted, “The Directorate for College Education had issued an order to introduce uniforms in government colleges based on the suggestion of student representatives. It has been brought to my attention that many students are not happy with this decision”.</p>
<p>Raje added, “I have therefore asked that uniforms be made voluntary rather than compulsory. We are here to provide our girls with whatever they require in order to excel in their education. #GirlsFirst”.</p>
<p>It need be mentioned that Rajasthan is slated to have state election later this year.</p>
<p>The dress code, itself was decided by the government and for boys it included shirt, pant, jersey (in winters), shoes, socks and belt, while for the girls, it was salwar-suit, chunni, sweater or cardigan, saree, shoes/sandals and socks.</>
