Open letter to PM on his ‘action for auction’

By Ravi Nitesh,

Dear Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Damodardas Modi,

I am writing this letter to you as citizen of India, who is witnessing the leading media reports about the ‘auction’ of your suit. It is also said in these reports that the suit is controversial one as it attracted criticism for its high cost, while you wore it during your meeting with USA president Mr. Obama. However, I am not worrying with these criticism or media reports, reason of my letter is something else. I had seen the division of thoughts on this action of auction , people supported and opposed the move. Even, I found such an action of auction is inappropriate and I opined it in social forums with my right to constitutional guarantee of freedom of expression. I found people who threw logics in your favor as a comment in oppose of my opinion. They also did with the same constitutional right that I enjoyed. Even these things of ‘for and against’ opinion are common and healthy for any democracy, so there is nothing to worry about, not at my end atleast. But, the reasons of my worry is about the logics of these comments and the whole action of this auction.
