Haridwar, November 6
Newly elected Bharatiya Janata Party Haridwar region divisional chief Vikas Tiwari today sought spiritual blessings from revered spiritual guru, Jagad Guru Shankaracharya Swami Raj Rajeshwaramji Maharaj, here today.

Tiwari, a former secretary of the BJP city unit, was elected to the post unanimously in the district unit elections held recently.
Jagadguru Shankaracharya Raj Rajeshwaramji blessed the youth leader and urged him to follow the footsteps of statesman politicians such as Lohiya, Deen Dayal Upadhyay and Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Raj Rajeshwaram also pointed out that today's politics had become a power-money oriented business, while earlier it used to be a social and patriotic mission.
Vikas Tiwari assured the spiritual guru of adhering to the path prescribed by him and said that he will work for the causes of downtrodden and poor wholeheartedly.
Later, on the sidelines, Vikas Tiwari said that all the factions of the BJP had lended support to him, as a result of which he got elected unopposed.
He stated that he would work with grass root level workers so that in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the BJP regained the Haridwar parliamentary seat. Tiwari is considered close to three-time BJP city legislator Madan Kaushik, who has a major say in the district politics as well as in the party organisation.
