New Delhi: A day after Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari attended a party event wearing military fatigues and came under massive flak for the same, Tiwari reasoned his choice of clothes to his pride in the Indian Army.

Tiwari reached his North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency on Saturday to flag off a bike rally but wearing Army fatigues.

Soon after, the Delhi BJP chief amassed flak for disrespecting the Indian armed forces.


Reportedly, the Indian Army had issued a statement urging civilians to not wear clothes with ‘Army pattern’ in 2016, following the Pathankot air base attack. The Army had also asked shopkeepers to not sell such patterned clothes.
