Adolf Lu Hitler Marak
|Adolf Lu Hitler Rangsa Marak|
|Born||1958/1959 (age 57–58)|
|Political party||Nationalist Congress Party|
He lost his seat in the state assembly in the February 2003 elections.
He lost the 2003 legislative election by just over 300 votes in a close fought battle with Zenith M. Sangma by finishing in 2nd place. However, he reemerged as the victor in the 2008 legislative elections.
In regard to his apparently controversial name, Hitler Marak told the Hindustan Times: "Maybe my parents liked the name and hence christened me Hitler... I am happy with my name, although I don't have any dictatorial tendencies."
In February 2013 it was widely reported in international media that Marak would be running again for the state assembly in Meghalaya, against some other oddly-named candidates, such as Frankenstein Momin and Billykid Sangma.
