Narendra Nath Dubey a.k.a. ‘Adig’ (unrelenting), whose claim to fame was that he had contested each and every election in the country since 1984, died on Wednesday.
A lawyer by profession, Adig was a habitual and determined candidate and had contested many elections, including of MLA, MLC, MP and Vice-President since 1984.
Despite aged in his early 70s, he had also contested against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2014 Lok Sabha election on the election symbol of a letter box.
However, he lost all the elections, forfeiting his deposit every time.
He came into limelight when the signatures of 50 Members of Parliament, endorsing his nomination for the 2012 Presidential election, were found to be fake.
Adig, a resident of Varanasi, aspired to find a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for losing a record number of polls.
He was also a practitioner of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
