Rahul Gandhi’s name proposed in Guinness Book of World Records for losing 27 elections

An engineering student from Madhya Pradesh has approached to the Guinness Book of World Records and requested to enlist Rahul Gandhi's name for losing as many as 27 elections in the country.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who is facing a dark phase in his political career due to back to back defeats across the country, is once again making the headlines. This time Rahul has been into the limelight for a completely unique reason. 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 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.

Many a times, Rahul has been the butt off all jokes for his speeches and political knowledge. Recently, the Congress VP was massively trolled on social networking sites for a joint press conference with Akhilesh Yadav where he forgot the total number of seats in Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. In the recently conducted assembly elections, Congress party lost in 4 out of the 5 states that went for polling. Despite winning large number of seats in Goa and Manipur, Congress couldn’t form the government. Even in places like Amethi and Raebareli, which are the Lok Sabha constituencies of Rahul and Sonia Gandhi respectively, the party could not retain the seats and lost to BJP candidates. Congress could only manage to form Government in Punjab where they defeated Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and BJP alliance.

It is a good gesture shown by this young man towards Rahul Gandhi. In fact he is responsible for turning the congress into ashes.

Actually I feel sorry for him., it's not his fault at all .. like his father he is a reluctant politician .. it's only the family sychophants who have pushed him into this .. but they have a big problem .. if anyone of the hi family members is not the high command then the intellectuals like Chidambaram , Kapil Sibal , Anand Sharma , Diggy raja , mani Iyer will keep fighting among themselves as each one cannot accept the other ., so it's actually a big dilemma for the congress ., what to do with Pappu .. they will keep contemplating and do nothing as usual .. in the meanwhile Modi and co will gain further ground and before they realise it will be a congress mukht Bharat .. its a matter of time .. till then let us enjoy his jokes on national television

Congress is a sinking ship. And the so called leaders only want apple pie from there party the moment they see they are getting defeated and remaining out of power they start blaming the high command of their party . They are not loyal to their on party or their leaders what loyalty they will show to our country.

Although it has become a laughing stock , however without strong opposition it is almost impossible to value positives... in our country , we are psing through a very bad phase of non opposition power. It also a very big challenge for a ruling party to perform without opposition.

Rahul hi has really worked hard to achieve this distinction. He must get it. Though it may be a bit premature, as congress is bound to lose still more under the able guidance of His Highness Sh Sh Rahul hi ji.

The author of this article seems to be inspired by Baba while stating that Congress could only form the Govermnment in Uttar Pradesh by defeating BJP and SAD alliance- so much for proof reading!
