Jaipur, Jan 18 (IANS) Don't indulge in pompous displays of wealth, lead a simple life and be rooted, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi told party workers at a meeting here Friday.

"Celebrating weddings, festivals and happy events is one thing. But what of lavish and ostentatious displays of wealth, pomp and status? Does this not beg the question, where is this wealth coming from," Sonia Gandhi told party leaders at the meeting.

"I hope you will take it seriously and come up with suggestions and norms that we may all accept and adhere to," she said.
