Rajendrasinh Ghanshyamsinh Rana (born 22 May 1956) was a member of the Lok Sabha of India from 1996 to 2014. He is the grandson of Sardarsinh Rawabhai Rana (1870–1957), who was an Indian political activist, founding member of the Paris Indian Society and the vice-president of the Indian Home Rule Society. He represented the Bhavnagar constituency of Gujarat for five terms of the Parliament. He is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and served as the President of the state unit of BJP from 1998 to 2006. During those crucial years, Narendra Modi was installed as the Chief Minister of Gujarat and the 2002 Gujarat riots occurred.

He was allegedly denied a ticket to Lok Sabha in 2014 by Narendra Modi due to his alleged closeness to Sanjay Joshi.[1]
