Surat, Feb 20: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's much-talked about monogrammed bandhgala, which he wore during his meeting with US President Barack Obama in January, was finally sold off for a whopping Rs 4.31 crore following an auction.
The auction was being held for the last three days. Diamond merchant Lalji Bhai bought the suit. The proceeds of the auction will go to the prime minister's Clean Ganga project. The suit is said to be second-most expensive in the world. The most expensive one has nearly 500 half-carat diamonds attached to it.
Modi's bandhgala was among 450 other items that were auctioned on the occasion.
