New Delhi: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Wednesday thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making the culture and tradition of the state proud by wearing a cap from his state (Uttarakhand) on Republic Day 2022.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi sported a cap from poll-bound Uttarakhand that had a Brahmakamal, the official flower of of the state, inscribed on it.
In a tweet in Hindi, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami wrote, “Today on the occasion of 73rd Republic Day, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has made the culture and tradition of our state proud by wearing the cap of Devbhoomi Uttarakhand, adorned with Brahmakamal.
He further wrote, “On behalf of the 1.25 crore people of Uttarakhand, I express my heartfelt gratitude to the Hon’ble Prime Minister.”
The attire of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Republic Day 2022 left many surprised as he opted for a cap instead of colourful turbans that he was seen wearing in the previous Republic Day celebrations since he became the Prime Minister of the country.
Voting for 70 assembly seats of Uttarakhand will be held in a single phase on February 14.
