She is married to politician Rajesh Ranjan better known as Pappu Yadav a former three-time winner of the Lok Sabha polls, who has also won the 16th Lok Sabha election from the constituency of Madhepura, Bihar as an independent Rashtriya Janata Dal candidate.
In the 14th Lok Sabha, she won and became one of the youngest MPs of Saharsa in North Bihar, Even though Congress' star campaigners, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, have not canvassed her in Supaul, she still managed to attract 332927 votes on her own and winning the elections against her immediate rivals Dileshwar Kamait of JD(U) and Kameshwar Chaupal of BJP.
Ranjeet Ranjan also called as Ranjeeta Ranjan, was an active lawn tennis player in the Bihar circuit, when Pappu Yadav noticed her on the tennis courts in Patna in 1993. He proposed to her. Eventually, he converted to Sikhism and married her.
One year after the marriage, she contested the assembly elections in 1995, but lost. After this she was involved in Pappu Yadav's election campaign in 1999. In 2004, she entered the fray again, from Saharsa in North Bihar, near Pappu's stronghold of Purnea.
However, in 2009, she shifted to the nearby Supaul constituency, partly because both she and her husband changed over to the Indian National Congress. This time though, she lost by more than 1.5 lakhs to Vishwa Mohan Kumar of Janata Dal (United). In the 2014 elections Ranjeeta Ranjan clinched the Supaul seat as a Congress candidate defeating JD(U) rival Dileshwar Kamait by around 60,000 votes and made it to Lok Sabha.
