Jyotiraditya Scindia is among the youngest in the Parliament. Elected to the Lok Sabha in February 2002 from his father the late Madhavrao Scindia's constituency Guna in Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya was initiated into his new career with an almost unprecedented lead of votes - a lead of more than 450,000.

His father Madhavrao Scindia died in an air crash and the Parliamentary seat from Guna fell vacant. Jyotiraditya was a natural choice for the seat.

Madhavrao Scindia, the erstwhile ruler of Gwalior was a nine-times elected Parliamentarian. His son Jyotiraditya was only 13 years old when he first campaigned for his father . Today, the 31 year old son has inherited the mantle of Head of the Scindia family but he did not inherit the seat in Parliament but won it through election.

Added to the political goodwill are Jyotiraditya's managerial skills he learnt at Harvard and Stanford, and the experience he gained working as an investment banker for some of the finest financial institutions - Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. He also gained some development experience with the UN economic Development Cell.
