A 1996 MBBS graduate from Jaipur-based SMS Medical College and married to Shri Narender Gehlaut in the year 2000, she is the mother of one son. Thought she is new in politics, her upbringing has helped her learn the real-life challenges of it.
"I belong to a traditional political family, where I learnt about commitment and contribution to rural upliftment and welfare of the farmer class," says Jyoti.
She attributes the trend of passing the baton to daughters in Jat families mainly to high level of awareness. "Jats are not only known for their political awareness but also for egalitarian life in which women in the family get equal status," she added.
She and her uncle Shri Richpal Singh Mirdha continous four times MLA from Degana are the present leaders from "BABA's"' family.
