Rao Inderjit Singh, a seasoned politician from southern Haryana and a stalwart of the Ahir community, once again cemented his political prowess by retaining the Gurgaon seat in the recent general election. Defeating his closest competitor, Congress' Raj Babbar, by over 75,000 votes, Singh's popularity remains unquestionable.

Switching from Congress to BJP before the 2014 general election, Singh has served in multiple key ministerial roles under both UPA and Modi governments. Singh was pivotal in bringing developmental projects to Gurgaon, including laying the foundation for an AIIMS in Rewari and establishing the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority.

The son of former Haryana Chief Minister Rao Birender Singh, Inderjit Singh's political career spans decades. His education at Lawrence School, Sanawar, and subsequent law degree enriched his legislative tenure as a four-term MLA of Haryana from 1977 to 2004. Throughout his career, Singh has built a reputation as a straightforward, no-nonsense leader deeply connected to his constituents' needs and aspirations.
