Mumbai: The Shiv Sena-run Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has provisionally cleared a proposal banning the display of lingerie on mannequins in the city. The proposal seeks strict action against shopkeepers and hawkers who display such mannequins.
The proposal has been cleared on the grounds that such mannequins will excite men and pose a danger to women. The proposal is yet to get final clearance from BMC chief Sitaram Kunte.
On getting the final clearance, the move would allow civic officials to ask shopkeepers to remove a mannequin if they think it is indecently dressed.
