New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said that he has a better dressing sense than his predecessors.

He was speaking at an event in Mumbai when a reporter asked him if his tailored outfit was too simple for a minister with such a high portfolio. He said he is uncomfortable in western outfits and his dress is much better than previous defence ministers.

"I am uncomfortable in western outfits like suits. Compared to the previous defence minister, my dress is much better," replied the minister.

"And I do not seek votes over my simplicity like another IITian," he added, in an apparent jibe at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who, like him, is an IIT grad.

Commenting on his shift to Delhi after Goa politics, Mr Parrikar said, "I came to Delhi only because the Defence portfolio was offered to me. Otherwise, I am more comfortable in Goa."
