A photo is viral containing photo of PM Modi wearing North East cultural Dress along with a online shopping websites screenshot in which a girl is wearing the same dress costing 35 USD. The point they are trying to make is that he is wearing a ladies’ dress which is completely false.
ANI, a national News online portal tweeted screenshot of Kirti Azad, an AITC MLA –
Sad to see how Kirti Azad is disrespecting culture of Meghalaya&mocking tribal attire. TMC must urgently clarify if they endorse his views. Their silence will amount to tacit support & thus will not be forgiven by people: Assam CM HB Sarma replying to TMC leader Kirti Azad's post pic.twitter.com/n8Y6ZBiD1M

The dress with which PM’s dress is being compared is edited, not real.
PM Modi addressed a meeting of the North Eastern Council (NEC) in Shillong, Assam on last Sunday i.e. 18th Dec. It was held to mark the Golden Jubilee of NEC, which was launched in 1972.
The Kurta Modi Ji was wearing was cut and pasted upon a model wearing a dress with similar color and pattern but not the same.

In the last eight years, Northeast has witnessed transformation in governance and work culture.
