Who quoted this price as 10 lakhs first ... Rahul Gandhi? He should be asked where he got that figure.

RaGa only memorizes and reads what he's given.. his ppl got it from their own social media propaganda picked up by presstitutes blindly.. like that rohtak sisters story.

Nappy bhai, do you still believe those news links you provided in defence of AAP?

HOW MEDIA CALCULATED THE FIGURE OF RS 10 LAKH FOR MODI SUIT WITHOUT CARING FOR FACTS

Ever since PM Narendra Modi wore a pinstripe suit with his name monogrammed on it on the Republic Day earlier this year, Mainstream Media and Social media has been spreading all sorts of stories about the origins of this suit. The most "believed" figure for the suit's cost is Rs. 10 lakhs, which has been repeated as gospel's truth by many leading journalists.

OpIndia.com traces how it all started, and how media comes up with "facts".

Our team went through all the comments and "information" available in the public as soon as the suit was found to have been inscribed with Modi's name. The first reaction was terming Narendra Modi a megalomaniac, which was followed by claims that what he did was not new. Many other state leaders had done that, most notably Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Soon the commentators tried to find the origins of Mubarak's suit. And they got such on a news reports from as early as March 2011. Such reports revealed the name of the company that stitched the suit for Mubarak. That report said " According to cloth maker Holland & Sherry, from London's Savile Row, the stripes may have cost around 10,000 pounds per suit."

And for some strange reasons, everyone assumed that the company that stitched the suit for Hosni Mubarak, also stitched it for Narendra Modi. This assumption was made mainstream by some foreign press reports.

An article in the London Evening standard, a UK based publication, on 26th January said - It appears that the suit has come from our very own Savile Row, with fabric made by "cloth merchants of distinction" Holland & Sherry. The fabric alone - seven metres required to make a suit - would have cost somewhere between 2,500 and 3,000.

Note the term " it appears", which means that London Evening Standard had no definite information about makers of the suit, and it had published a report on guess work. Perhaps they wanted to find a British link (note the term " our very own " to every international event just as our media tries to find an Indian link to every international event.

But that didn't deter many on the social media, especially those aligned to the Congress party, from spreading this weak assumption it as if it was some gospel truth.

Once spread by Congress allied social media accounts, this was then blindly picked by up Indian mainstream media. A DNA article was one of the first to start this propaganda. Of course, they were ably supported by the usual suspects from Social Media.

Modi wore a ₹10 lakh suit!?!! pic.twitter.com/m4XcGA14DI - Mihir Sharma (@mihirssharma) January 26, 2015

So @narendramodi ji's pinstriped inscribed bandhgala costs almost 8lakh rupees. Not abnoxious waste of (tax payers)money? right? #ModiSuit - Rudrali Patil (@rudralipatil) January 26, 2015

Modi Assets worth 2Cr only, but wears suits costing 10lacs each. Who pays? Taxpayers money? Corporates ? #ModiSuit - Vinod Mehta (@DrunkVinodMehta) January 26, 2015

Later Rahul Gandhi repeated the claim in run up to Delhi elections, and the figure of 10 lakh became a fact. While certain sections of the media blindly copied the British figures and Rahul Gandhi, Times of India tried to estimate the cost from scratch. In this piece, they said an Indian designer estimated that " cost is anything between Rs 80,000 and Rs 5 lakh, depending on the fabric". They also claimed that the suit was stitched by Jade Blue, the same company which makes the famous Modi Kurtas.

So as of this stage, our stellar journalists had a range of Rs 80,000 to Rs 10 lakh as the cost of Modi's suit, and it could have come from London or from Ahmedabad.

This proves Modi and bjp are dumb when it comes to managing media.. In badri lingo.. They have only couple years to get it right or RaGa/Nitish/Kejriwal will be PM in 2019.

A kaangressi will probably counter this by saying Amit Shah must have sent his gunda log to threaten Rameshkumar Bhikabhai Virani into giving this statement

There are so many newspapers that carry similar meaning stories.
Don't worry bhau , as soon as I get sufficient conflicting stories , I will stop believing them.

I do not understand Kejri's latest order - and he had announced it before election - demolitions are not going to happen. So even if someone is put up illegally , he can stay there.

Does that make sense to anyone?

On a lighter note , Delhiites did not vote for free wifi - they thought they will get free wife.

Whats wrong if he wears a 10 lakh suit? The media was going gaga over Obama's 'Beast' which would have cost much more.

And if he auctions it now, wont Chinese feel bad if he wears a cheaper suit whenever Chinese president comes??

Rajiv Gandhi was also known for his expensive outfits.

That doesn't matter to AAP.. who are wrong for the right reasons. Those poor people living in illegal settlements, nobody is caring for them, nobody standing up for them.

AAP has taken a stand, you support them and they reciprocate. Be it auto drivers or slum dwellers or the people who got with not having to pay their "huge" electricity bills.

At least he was able to get the money back in the government funds . Can someone provide detail on how much was the cost of Sonia Gandhis treatment in USA and who paid for it ? Living in USA , I know it was more than 10 lacs. Cost of delivary in USA is $25K , which is more than 15 lacs......

Again, what was wrong in his wearing a costly suit in the first place?? What will he wear for receiving Chinese Supremo, etc.

A lot more goes into maintaining 7 RCR, Air India One, etc. These are necessary for the security and for meeting guys like Obama. IK Gujral was living for sometime in his own house in Maharani Bagh but moved to 7 RCR after his commute to South block was inconveniencing every one.

Reminds me of public (both Desi and Videsi) crying over Mukesh Ambani's Antilla. It is his money, he can spend whatever way he wants. Why cry over it.
