98 voters in 209-member household head to India polls

KOLKATA, India, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- The head of India's largest household said election days are a trial for the family of 209, which includes 98 voting-eligible adults.

The head of the household, identified as Ziona, 69, said he has 39 wives, 41 sons, 46 daughters, 22 grandsons, 26 granddaughters and seven great-grandchildren all living under the same roof in Mizoram, making it complicated, but not impossible, for the 98 eligible voters to cast their ballots in the state's elections, Gulf News reported Monday.

"All the eligible voters of the family have voted. Both the Congress and the opposition have been wooing us, considering addressing our family as a small political rally," Ziona said Monday.

"Voting day is a challenge for us since our daily work is affected. Also our mothers and wives cannot do the daily chores," said Ziona, whose oldest wife is 73.
