South Korea President thanks PM Modi for sending customised ‘Modi vests’, usual suspects see red

Omar Abdullah, fuming at the name of 'Modi vests' tweeted that Modi had usurped Nehru jacket's name and has started calling it Modi vests.

In a major endorsement to ‘Make in India’ initiative, the President of the Republic of Korea, Moon Jae-in has taken to his Twitter account to laud Indian traditional wear and thanked Modi for the kind gesture of sending customised ‘Modi Vests’, meticulously tailored to fit him. He also said that the Modi vests conform with the Korean dressing sense and can be worn easily in Korea.

During his official visit to India, President Moon Jae-in was particularly impressed by the vests worn by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and had complemented PM Modi for the same. Taking bonhomie to another level and acknowledging Moon Jae-in’s complement, PM Modi gifted him a few customised Modi vests, all scrupulously tailored to fit him.

President Moon Jae-in was also touched by PM Modi’s thoughtful message in Korean on Twitter after winning the Seoul Peace Prize. He congratulated PM Modi on this accomplishment.

But this seems to have not gone down well with the known Modi detractors. Omar Abdullah, fuming at the name of ‘Modi vests’ tweeted that Modi had usurped Nehru jacket’s name and has started calling it Modi vests. Clearly, those who have attributed every small thing that the country did since independence to Gandhi-Nehru dynasty are fazed by an outsider who is making India proud with his sense of diplomacy and realpolitik.

Ashok Swain, a congenital Modi hater, and a known dynasty supporter undermined PM Modi by saying that he can never be Nehru and took a cheap jibe at him. Evidently, the tweets by Korean President expressing gratitude to the PM Modi for sending him ‘Modi Vests’  have rubbed a section of self-proclaimed intellectuals the wrong way.

President of Korea, Moon Jae-in was on an official 3-day visit to India in July this year. The two leaders had bilateral talks on a wide range of issues and later delivered a joint statement. The two leaders also addressed India-South Korea CEOs and held extensive talks at the roundtable.

PM Modi asserted that South Korean companies are not only strengthening ‘Make in India’ initiative but are also generating employment opportunities in India. He thanked the South Korean president for his cooperation.

Modi was one of the few world leaders to congratulate Moon on his election last year.
