"I am happy that a social sanctity has been given to this relationship," Ujjwala said, looking happy after the wedding. She said their son Rohit also wanted this to happen. Tiwari's office May 15 said the legal process, including registration of the marriage, would be completed after a formal announcement of the marriage. Tiwari's first wife passed away years back.
Ujjwala was locked in a protracted legal battle with Tiwari over accepting Rohit as his son and the two sides settled the matter out of the court after a DNA test ordered by the Delhi High Court proved that Rohit was Tiwari's biological son.
She was not allowed recently to enter into Tiwari's house in Mall Avenue area. She lodged a complaint with Lucknow police against security personnel and the officer on special duty to Tiwari, Bhawani Bhatt. Police intervened and Tiwari allowed her inside the house. Agreeing to the "live-in" relationship, the two started living in the same house a week back. The former union finance minister, who has also served as governor of Andhra Pradesh, Tiwari has now settled the matter for all. (IANS)
