A 77-year-old Manipur minister has married a 24-year-old nursing graduate, barely three months after a Bangladesh minister tied the knot with a woman 38 years his junior. Manipur health and family welfare minister Phungzathang Tonsing married Thangngaihsang on Friday in a ceremony attended by chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh and other dignitaries, at the Evangelical Baptist Church in state capital Imphal. It was the ministerâ€™s second marriage. The bride, 53 years younger than her husband, is the daughter of T Khamzadou, a resident of New Lamka in Churachandpur district. A Churachandpur local said Khamzadouâ€™s family consented to the marriage as the â€œminister needed someone to look after him as most of his children stayed outside the stateâ€. In November last year, Bangladesh railway minister Mujibul Haque, 67, married 29-year-old Honufa Akhter Rikta in Comilla town. It was Haqueâ€™s first marriage. http://t.co/FNCarYcsth wht say cong-nehru culture! Ps- i don't know why they avoided using 'congi' in the report!
