Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal expressed gratitude on behalf of Assam and devotees of Krishnaguru Sevashram, highlighting the spiritual and cultural significance associated with the Gamosa.

PM Modi’s fondness for the Gamosa has previously attracted attention. In 2023, he participated in a Guinness World Record-breaking yoga session at the United Nations headquarters, where he prominently wore the Assamese Gamosa. Similarly, during his visit to the United States and the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram, Modi continued to showcase his appreciation for the cultural symbol.

PM Modi’s consistent support for Gamosa artisans and self-help organizations in Assam has underscored his commitment to promoting local craftsmanship and heritage.
