Narendra Modi Suit Auction value up to Rs. 5 Crore
The suit started a national level debate too as the political parties thought to make an issue of it. This included the opponent parties AAP and Congress who criticized Modi for wearing so expensive suit which actually cost Rs. 10 Lakhs at that time. Also, on the day of auction, the Congress people went on a strike on the very say of auction and called the auction as the event of self publicity for Modi.
Surat city Congress president Desai even questioned people that their choice is not completing his promises and is conducting an auction for his own publicity and his own personal gains. How could be the politicians quiet now as they have got this big opportunity to speak up? Some politicians supported it by saying that it is so precious and important that it should be kept in the museum to show it importance in the future.
If we see the constitution then it may be noted that the rule is violated only when the gifts received by the PM in his official journeys cannot b kept by him and does not belong to his personal item. Also, the person who gifted him this suit is Bhikabhai who calls himself as a friend of Modi from four decades.
So, till now, no rule is violated. But the politicians never ever leave the opportunity for it too. Well, it is good that the fund is getting this good money. Soon, we can see Ganga clean and a happy smile on our faces too. Well, media is curious to know about how the reaction of Modi will be.
