Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Meghalaya and Tripura is in focus! He was in Shillong to lay foundation stones for various projects in Meghalaya worth Rs 2,450 crores. While many lauded his efforts in making the North-eastern state prosper and grow, the Prime Minister's outfit choice for the event won many hearts too! When it comes to PM Modi, his wardrobe choice is a class apart and in fact, very thoughtful. He often connects with people by getting coloured in their traditions and cultural symbolism through his outfit choices.

Decoding PM Modi's Meghalaya look 

On Sunday, PM Modi wore a traditional Khasi outfit along with a traditional Garo hat in Shillong - in a bid to convey his respect for the culture of both the key tribes of Meghalaya. Meghalaya has three major tribes - the Garos, the Jayantias, and the Khasis. 

Shillong is predominantly known to be populated by Khasis with a sizeable number of people from the other two tribes. Garo hills and Jayantia hills have Garos and Jayantias in the majority population. 

In fact, NEDA alliance partner in Meghalaya NPP President and Chief Minister of the state Conrad Sangma is a Garo. So Prime Minister's outfit on Sunday served as a message to the people of the state that he is here for them, to understand their culture, and to extend all kinds of support to make the state grow and prosper.
