Accordingly Narendra Singh, a commoner belonged to a modest family married Diya Kumari in August 1997 after a nine year courtship despite opposition from the Royal family who had opposed their marriage as both were from same gotra ( common lineage). Hence they married despite the opposition and had two sons and a daughter.
Moreover a close associate of Vasundhara Raje, Diya Kumari joined the BJP in September, 2013 in the presence of then Chief Minister of Gujarat ,Narendra Modi and senior leaders including Rajnath Singh. Accordingly Diya defeated the influential caste leader Kirodi Lal Meena in 2014, but now at the end of her debut term she had lost her ticket to another candidate, Asha Meena, a former pradhan of Sawai Madhopur and member of the district council for the upcoming assembly election, who was supported by Kirodi Lal Meena. Furthermore citing personal reasons she decided not to contest Rajasthan elections this year but the BJP are considering her candidature for the Lok Sabha elections in 2019.
