You may have seen Prime Minister Narendra Modi donning many hats. But for his Sweden visit, the prime minister had something new to show to his fans and followers. For the historic visit to Sweden, Modi ditched his traditional kurta, in which he has been seen in past while meeting foreign dignitaries. Instead, the prime minister chose to look dapper in a grey blazer along with a pair of black trousers, and a crew-neck t-shirt. Modi complemented his refreshing look with a red scarf and a white-black printed pocket square.
On Tuesday, PM Modi called on Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf and exchanged views on strengthening bilateral cooperation across several sectors. The prime minister reached Sweden on Tuesday for the first bilateral visit by an Indian prime minister to the Nordic nation in the last 30 years.
Extending a special welcome to the Indian PM, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven received Modi at the airport. Both leaders also traveled together in the same vehicle from the airport to the hotel.
