The 74-year-old Congress nominee from Jamshedpur, Bagun Sumbrui, is a much married man. In fact, he doesn't even remember how many times he has married. Some put the number at 50.

The deputy speaker of Jharkhand assembly, who is obviously not bothered by such inanities as counting his wives, has announced that he’ll marry again if he wins the elections.

But his penchant for marriage has given his rivals a stick to beat him with.

Almost all rival candidates are criticising Sumbrui over his fondness for marriage. Leading the charge is BJP's Laxman Gilua, the sitting MP. Gilua has challenged Sumbrui to reveal how many times he has married and how many kids he has fathered.
