Conjoined twins, Sabah and Farah, cast their votes today as separate individuals with independent voting rights for the first time in India’s election history.
The two sisters first cast their votes as an individual in 18 October 2015 assembly election in Digha. At that EC refused to allow them to cast their votes individually.
Election Commission of India’s official Twitter account had earlier shared the twins’ touching story with their hashtag - #Chunavkikahaniyan. Now, the sisters have gone viral on social media for exercising their democratic rights.
However, Sabah and Farah are conjoined in such a way that their heads are always turned in the opposite direction, thus making it impossible for one to check out the other’s voting activity.
