Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh: In what seems to be a completely unique distinction for the Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, a student from Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad has approached the Guinness Book of World Records to include his name for losing a record 27 elections.

Vishal Diwan, a student of an engineering college, reportedly mentioned the Congress Vice President’s 27 election losses as the basis to include Rahul’s name in the world records book.

After the Congress’ monumental defeat in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Goa Assembly Elections, some of the senior party members questioned his ability and called for structural changes in the party.

Rahul Gandhi also led the party campaign in the 2014 General Assembly Elections in which the Congress was ousted from the Center after ruling for 10 years. BJP swiped across the nation with 282 seats out of 543 while the Congress only managed to win 44 seats.
