Rahul Gandhi’s name proposed in Guinness Book of World Records for losing maximum elections.
Rahul Gandhi continues to be the butt of all jokes, ever since his colossal defeat in the Assembly elections this year. Now, a student from an engineering college has now proposed mentioning the Congress VP in the Guinness book of world records for losing a record 27 elections.
Vishal Diwan, an engineering student from Madhya Pradesh, India had recently approached to the Guinness Book of World Records and requested to enlist Rahul’s name for losing as many as 27 elections.
Diwan believes that Congress party’s losing spree in last five years is somewhere a result of Rahul Gandhi’s active participation in election campaigning and media interactions. As a matter of fact, this number consistent losses are more than enough to get qualified for the record book. In order to fulfill his wish, Diwan has written a letter to the administration of Guinness Books and have also paid the enrollment fees for the same. Diwan has received the confirmation of acceptance of his application, but the US-based record book have not confirmed whether it will approve such the request or not.
Rahul Gandhi has often been attributed with the monumental decline of the Congress’ power in the country, losing the 2014 General Assembly Elections, led by Gandhi and yet again this year in the Assembly elections, where the party allied with former government in power Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh. Gandhi’s partnership with Akhilesh Yadav from Samajwadi Party didn’t work and the Congress VP added one more election loss in his list of many.
The BJP, however, sweeped the state with a historic win, taking 312 seats, leaving behind the SP-Congress coalition with just 54 seats in its favour, the Congress won only 7 out of the 105 seats it contested in the 403-member assembly election.
