Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today opened up about his much publicised simple attire, saying he is uncomfortable in western clothes like suits but his dresses are much better than his predecessors.

Parrikar, who addressed an event in suburban Bandra, was asked about his dressing sense. The questioner said a section of government machinery thinks that the attire of Parrikar, despite having a major portfolio, is too simple.

Parrikar quipped, “I am uncomfortable in western outfits like suits. Compared to previous defence minister, my dress is much better.”

“And I do not seek votes over my simplicity like another IITian,” the Defence Minister said, in an apparent jibe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Commenting on his innings in Delhi, after a stint in Goa politics, Parrikar said, “I came to Delhi only because the Defence portfolio was offered to me. Otherwise, I am more comfortable in Goa.”

    His simplicity is well known. A very rare politician. I heard many people telling about good things in Goa. We need people like in politics. he is the most right choice for the Defense Minister. Compare him with that of Antony. He may be personally clean handed among the corrupt looters of Congress. But unfit to be the Defense Minister. In order to remain clean he never took any decisions except releasing some brave statements. Manohar Parrirkar the best so far in the ministry.
