Luxury Brands Rub Indian Ruler Wrong Way

Web India 123: Irked by Cartier watches and Gucci glasses, Congress president Sonia Gandhi has asked party colleagues not to flash their wealth and not to waste tax payers’ money.
The stern warning went out from her office recently after she noticed that some party leaders who called on her were sporting expensive luxurious items and travelling in luxury cars.
A Congress source said Gandhi was visibly irritated and promptly dashed off a letter to all party leaders across the country, reminding them about the values for which the country’s oldest party stood for.
Thanks to Flypaper for the pointer.
