RSS rejects trousers as dress code

Except some minor changes the dress code of the Sangh activists is likely to remain the same. The demand from some activists for trousers as dress code along with half shorts has been rejected by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The practice of putting leather belt has been replaced with belts made from thick clothes and the buckles will be of steel rather than copper.
