Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, on Wednesday, opened up about his much publicised ‘simple attire style statement’ commenting that he dresses “better than” his predecessors.
Speaking at an event in Mumbai, the 60-year-old defence minister said, he feels “uncomfortable” in western clothes like suits but his dresses are “much better” than his predecessors.
I am uncomfortable in western outfits like suits. Compared to the previous defence minister, my dress is much betterParrikar
In an indirect jibe at the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Parrikal added he does not seek votes over my simplicity like “another IITian”.
The union minister, who had migrated to the capital city from Goa also saidhe is more comfortable in his home state, adding that he came to Delhi only because the Defence portfolio was offered to him.
