One user tweeted, “A self-proclaimed fakeer’s Kani Pashmina Shawl costs around ₹130,000 or $1,650! The Fakeer who is selling India!”
One user has written, now people are unnecessarily commenting on the shawl that Modi ji is wearing.. The price of this shawl is being told only $ 1650, which according to the Indian rupee is only Rs 135300. If GST is included separately then it will increase by 28%. Who will explain to the opposition that identity is determined by the dress.
