Conjoined twins who were left by their parents after only two months have claimed that they are only given a single salary. Sohna and Mohna Singh, both 19, from Punjab, India, appeared last month in a YouTube interview with documentary director Ruhi enet, in which they claimed they earn only £200 per month.
The siblings appear to have revised their tale from prior interviews in which they claimed to be paid separately. Since last December, the twins have worked as electricians for the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited, where they perform 12-hour shifts in the supply control room.
In a 2021 interview with the Independent, the twins stated: “We appreciate the Punjab government recognizing our talent.” However, fans have voiced anger after finding that the brothers share a salary.
“If they have distinct identities, they should have two different checks,” one person said, according to MailOnline.
“One pay wage for two people?” commented another. That infuriates me. Viewers commended the twins’ charming personalities, saying they are “not seeking for self-pity, simply getting on with life.” In the interview, the twins stated that they want to marry the same person when they reach the age of 25.
“They are lovely and their attitudes are so fantastic,” one user commented. They are grateful to God for creating them. These brothers can teach us so much. They made me happy. I pray that God grants them the desires of their heart. Some girls will be very blessed to spend their lives together.”
Someone else wrote: “Even in this situation, they completed electrical engineering and work to earn a living. We observe ordinary people complaining and blaming their situation. You are both true inspirations to all of us.”
The brothers, who were born in June 2003 at New Delhi’s Sucheta Kriplani Hospital and abandoned by their parents when they were two months old, have two hearts, kidneys, and spinal cords, as well as two pairs of arms, but share a liver, gallbladder, legs, and spleen.
Doctors opted against separating the twins since it may have been deadly for one of them, resulting in vascular and neurological damage to the surviving twin’s lower limbs.
