Narrating the incident one woman said, "When we reached the venue, a woman police officer told us to remove our black chunnis and keep it in the bag. Later, they took it away, saying that it would be given back after the end of the chief minister's programme."

Lashing out at Shivraj Singh Chouhan over the incident, former Multai MLA and state Congress general secretary Sukhdev Panse said, "The chief minister is afraid. He is afraid even from the uniforms of the girl students. This has never happened in the state's history when the police took away the chunnis of the girls due to fear of protest."
