Coming from a humble background, Ajit Sawant has always been in touch with his roots and his people. His late father, Comrade P. G. Sawant, who was a freedom fighter and a trade union leader instilled in him a spirit of patriotism and courage. Ajit Sawant, in his childhood grew up listening to stories of the freedom movement and found his passion for reading at an early age.

At present, Ajit Sawant is pursuing his doctorate in the field of labour welfare for the unorganised workers.
Ajit Sawant is a product of the youthful and dynamic tone set by the late Hon. Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi. His qualities earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues and he served the Congress Party as the General Secretary and Spokesperson of the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee for more than 12 years. Despite several hurdles, Ajit Sawant refuses to be a sychophant and has decided to not let go of his honesty, dedication and sense of service to the common man.
