Prior to being elected chairman of the central committee, Rohit served as treasurer, parliamentarian, chairman of the bylaws committee, and supervisor district caucus chair at various times since he joined the central committee in early 2011.

Rohit began his political involvement when he signed up with the Berkeley College Republicans (BCR) during his freshman year of college. In 2006 and 2008, he organized members of BCR to walk precincts for candidates in targeted districts in the East Bay. He also served as Publisher of the California Patriot, Berkeley's nationally-renowned conservative student publication. 

More recently, Rohit has served on the boards of two chartered volunteer organizations of the California Republican Party, the California Young Republican Federation and the California Republican Assembly, and as Chairman of the Bylaws and Rules Committee of the Young Republican National Federation. As a Republican activist, Rohit has traveled to targeted districts to volunteer for State Assembly, State Senate, and congressional campaigns in many general and special elections in California, and a handful of key out-of-state campaigns for key U.S. Senate races as well. He has served in numerous party governance roles, as a member of the central committee in every county in which he has lived since he was 18 and as a delegate of the California Republican Party’s state central committee, and in the past has served on the state party’s executive, platform, resolutions, and proxies and credentials committees.

Professionally, Rohit is a Certified Public Accountant licensed to practice in California. Outside politics and work, he enjoys hiking, running, traveling, and spending time with family. He has lived in Walnut Creek for over five years.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I served as the youngest member of the California Republican Party's platform committee in 2007-2008 and helped craft the party platform. Most of the language in that platform was re-adopted in 2012 and again in 2015. The platform accurately reflects my political philosophy and the complete document can be found here.
