Modi’s suit settles for Rs 4.31 crore


Surat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monogrammed bandhgala suit was sold off for a whooping amount of Rs 4.31 on Friday. There were bidders from all over the country to get hold of the ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ suit.

The pin-striped navy blue suit that Modi wore for his Summit meeting with the US President Barack Obama on January 25, went to Surat-based diamond trader Lalji Patel and his son after intense bidding in the dying moments of the auction.

“The suit has been purchased for Rs 4.31 crore by Dharmananda Diamond Company’s Lalji Patel and his son Hitesh Patel,” District Collector Rajendra Kumar announced at the close of the 3-day auction at 5 pm.
