Prime Minister Narendra Modi is known for his fine sartorial taste. In his latest appearance for the inauguration of the all-weather Atal Tunnel, world’s longest highway tunnel, in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, he opted for a traditional attire that was just perfect for the occasion.

PM Modi wore a cream kurta with intricate design in yellow on red, visible around the neck and the sleeves, and a cream waistcoat. He paired the attire with a maroon shawl. Take a look:
