New Delhi:

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi may be on the path of being immortalised in the Guinness Book of World Record. An engineering student from Madhya Pradesh has approached the international agency to enlist Rahul Gandhi’s name for losing most elections.

According to a report in The Financial Express, Vishal Diwan, who is an engineering student from Hoshangabad Madhya Pradesh, has approached Guinness Book of World Records and requested to enlist Rahul Gandhi’s name for losing as many as 27 elections in the country.

Diwan has based his application on the believe 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.

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.

After poll debacle in most recent state elections, many Congress leaders and volunteers have also started questioning his abilities to leader. The Youth Congress leaders have even demanded his resignation.
