Sushilkumar Shinde (Marathi: सुशीलकुमार शिंदे) (born September 4, 1941, Solapur, Maharashtra) is an Indian politician from the state of Maharashtra. He is currently the Cabinet Minister for Power in the Manmohan Singh government.

He belongs to the Congress Party. He is the first Dalit caste person to have become the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He served as Chief Minister from January 18, 2003 to November 1, 2004.

He was born into a very poor Hindu "Kakkaya-Dhor" family. The Kakkaya cast was a Maratha caste formed after the 13th century. His first job was sub-inspector of police. He also studied law. Encouraged by Sharad Pawar, then a rising Congress politician, he quit his sub-inspector's job to enter politics in 1971. He contested an assembly by-election from Karmala in Solapur three years later and won by 25,000 votes. In November that year, the late V P Naik, then the chief minister, made Shinde a junior minister in his government.
