Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on his five-day tour to four nations – Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya – and on Day 1, he addressed the Indian community in Johannesburg where the most applauded takeaway remained his statement on how South Africa had transformed Mahatma Gandhi.
While Modi, in his speech, talked about how the youth should be the driving force and the countries’ development, people can’t help but go gaga over the shirt he wore during the address.
He wore a ‘Madiba’ shirt, which is associated with anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, but here’s how Twitter reacted.

Must Say, Loving PM Modi’s Blue printed Shirt More Than His Speech at Johannesburg today. Reminds of The Great Raj Kapoor in Mera Nam Joker.
