Haldwani (Uttarakhand), Nov 18 (ANI): A record holder in reverse-motor-driving, who has made it to the Limca Book of Records laments the lack of support from the state government in facilitating his bid to get into the Guiness Book of World Records.
Mobin Khan, 40, a resident here, always drives his car backwards and holds the record for the longest reverse driving without a break.
Khan teaches driving for a livelihood and is also financially supported by his friends.
Khan claims he can work wonders with a little support from the state government as he can drive in reverse gear for several kilometers and for hours at a stretch without applying the brakes even once.
The indifference of the state towards him prevents him from making a world record, claims Khan. A dejected Khan says his correspondence with the state authorities, including the Sports Minister, has all gone in vain.
He plans to undertake a reverse driving venture from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in Kerala.
The expertise, according to him will cost 1.2 million rupees.People who have seen Khan drive, say that he is a budding star.
"I have never seen anything like it. It is terrific, we find it difficult to drive straight and he does it in reverse. Really, the government must do something for him. He must be helped to reach where he wants to," said Raja.
Khan has entered the Limca Book of Records twice. (ANI)
