Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name-striped suit which he wore at a meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama was set for auction, and a Gujarati-based businessman has bid it for Rs. 1.21 crores.
This highest bid of Rs. 1.21 crore came from textile businessman Rajesh Juneja for the controversial suit worn by the prime minister just once. Besides the name-striped suit, 450 other gifts he has received, also went on sale and the bids amount will be utilized for the cleaning of river Ganga.
BJP leader Rajubhai Agarwal initially bid for it for Rs. 51 lakh, and later Suresh Agrawal, a textile businessman has doubled the offer. However, it is businessman Rajesh Juneja who later bid it for Rs. 1.21 cr.
The name-striped suit with the words Narendra Damodardas Modi, created controversy as the opposition parties accused of narcissism. The suit was gifted by Ramesh Kumar to PM Modi.
