PM Narendra Modi's Rs.1 million 'name suit' criticised

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's striped suit that he wore at his meeting with US President Barack Obama recently has been criticised on social media after reports said it cost nearly Rs.1 million. From a distance the suit appeared to be a classic navy blue pinstripe, but closer inspection revealed that the stripes were actually his name, repeatedly written in gold embroidery to form the stripes. Critics called the PM narcissistic and self-obsessed, and one post said rather sarcastically that the man who reminds voters he is a simple 'sevak' of the people, is looking very 'regal'. A senior Congress party politician had his say and called Mr Modi a megalomaniac while cartoonists went to town on the subject of the suit.
