Rohit Shekhar Tiwari was the biological son of ND Tiwari and Ujjwala Sharma, who Tiwari married in 2014. 

He fought a court case to prove himself as the son of late Congress leader ND Tiwari. The veteran politician had accepted Rohit as his son in 2016 after a long legal battle which had even reached the Supreme Court before reconciliation.

In January 2017, Rohit Shekhar had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
