People applauded when he got into position with his left foot on the brake and right on the steering wheel. Claiming that he could also drive heavy vehicles, Poudel said this was the second time he was driving. He demostrated his driving prowess in Kathmandu in 2001.

“If the government had shown interest, my name would already have entered the Guinness Book of World Records,” he rued.
