An orphan at the age of three, Hitendra Thakur grew up based on his family's meagre income from a small tea stall.

However, Hitendra Thakur successfully ran for the Vasai legislative seat in 1990 under the Indian National Congress party. Then he has made his own party named Vasai Vikas Mandal.

He did not contest the recently contested polls and his party candidate lost the polls to Vivek Pandit.
