Vadodara: A 55-year-old man has come here all the way from Tamil Nadu to fight elections against Narendra Modi, with not an aim for winning but to set a record.
Having no political ambition or hope to win election, Tamil Nadu-based tyre trading firm owner Dr K Padmarajan filed his nomination as an independent Lok Sabha candidate from Vadodara seat yesterday, just to set a world record of fighting maximum number of elections.
Padmarajan, who is a qualified homoeopathic doctor, has already fought and lost all the 158 elections in the past.
'This is my 159th nomination. I call myself as the Election King of India. I have fought elections since last 25 years just to set a world record of fighting maximum number of elections. I will continue fighting elections till I accomplish my aim,' he said.
A native of Mettur in Tamilnadu, Padmarajan got attracted towards Vadodara after BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi chose the seat.
