Man wants to be declared Vajpayee's son, approaches Supreme Court
A man from Hardoi has moved Supreme Court demanding to be declared the foster son of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Sanjeev Dwivedi, a lawyer practising in Lucknow bench of Allahabad court, said he treated the veteran BJP leader as his father and wished to serve him. The case might come up for hearing soon. Vajpayee is currently admitted in AIIMS, Delhi.
Sanjeev Dwivedi claims he has an emotional connection with Vajpayee
Reportedly, Dwivedi was inspired by Vajpayee in 1996 and considers the latter his God. He has also met him, and claims he was teary-eyed then. Other than memorizing Vajpayee's poems, he has also written verses in his praise. He said he was worried about Vajpayee's deteriorating health and wanted to take care of him. Dwivedi hoped the apex court would not disappoint him.

Dwivedi said he had a photo of the iconic statesman in his house's temple and he begins his day by worshipping him. In his petition, Dwivedi quoted the Hindu epic in which Lord Brahma had 14 'manas' sons. He also argued Swami Dayanand Saraswati had two such sons. The case will be heard in July, and Dwivedi has high hopes from it.
