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.”
