The chief minister said this at a mass marriage organized in Holalkere town, 30 km from Chitradurga, where social welfare minister H Anjaneya' daughter A V Anupama married S Shashwath. Stressing that people should avoid lavish weddings, Siddaramaiah said: "People live in debt after spending lavishly on their children's weddings.”
