The Wife’s Vote
A Lok Sabha candidate from Madhya Pradesh has never managed to get his wife’s vote.
Jain, 55, is contesting from Indore as an independent for a record 27th time and is busy campaigning. But he always fails to “woo” his wife Rajkumari Jain, who votes for his rival.
Ask him why his wife doesn’t vote for him and he says: “Bai bai ko vote deti hai (women vote for women).
See, that is one reason I never stand for elections. One can never trust your wife to vote for you. And if 50% of my vote-bank isn’t going to vote for me, no point in contesting.
