A candidate named Rahul Modi has reportedly secured 420th rank in the UPSC exam and is on his way to becoming an administrative service officer. His name, however, became one of the top Twitter trends as it is the combination of the names of the two leaders. "It is the merger of a century," a Twitter user quipped.
