NEW DELHI: The monogrammed suit worn by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his meeting with American President Barack Obama last year, which created huge controversy, entered Guinness Book of World Records as ‘the most expensive suit sold’.

The suit was sold at an auction for Rs. 43,131,311. It was bought by Laljibhai Tulsibai Patel, a resident of Surat, in Gujarat, on February 20, 2015.

The proceeds from this auction have gone to the Namami Gange Fund, a project to clean the Ganga River.

The pin stripped suit garnered considerable controversy and media attention for having the name ‘Narendra Modi’ stitched on it.

Many critics then accused the Prime Minister of being ‘self-obsessed’ and ‘narcissist’ and his monogrammed suit as ‘gimmick’.

Congress party vice-president Rahul Gandhi then said the suit was "Make in UK" and another Congress leader Jairam Ramesh called him ‘melodramatic’.

Media reports claimed that the price of the suit that Prime Minister Modi wore during his interaction with President Obama at Hyderabad House on January 26, 2015 was Rs. 10 lakhs.

The suit was gifted to Prime Minister Modi by an ardent fan, said others.
