PATNA: Amid all the troubles griping the family of incarcerated Lalu Prasad, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president, finally comes the good news!
Prasad’s eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav is now scheduled to tie nuptial knot with Aishwarya Rai, granddaughter of former Bihar chief minister Daroga Prasad Rai who ruled the state for 10 months in 1970.
This comes barely a fortnight after India’s top court threw out a petition seeking to register a murder case against Tej Pratap, a RJD lawmaker who served as the health minister in the previous Grand Alliance government.
A close aid of the family told the media on Friday that their ring ceremony would take place later this month while the wedding would be solemnised on May 12 at a city hotel.
There was no official confirmation if Prasad would attend the wedding of his son but family sources said they would move a petition to the court, requesting it allow him attend the wedding.
The RJD president who currently is serving prison term has been admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi after sever health complications.
As per reports, Aishwarya, daughter of former cabinet minister Chandrika Rai, is a MBA graduate while Tej Pratap is only Grade 12 pass-out and is inclined towards religion.
He is an ardent follower of Lord Krishna and has been frequently visiting Mathura and Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh to offer prayers.
Aishwarya hails from Chapra town in Saran district which remained the home Lok Sabha constituency of the RJD president for long until he was disqualified from contesting elections after his conviction is multi-million dollar fodder scam in 2013 for the first time.
During the celebration to mark birthday of her husband last year, Rabri Devi had revealed what kind of daughter-in-law she has been looking for.
“I don’t want cinema hall and mall-going girls. She should be one who can look after the house, respect elders and manage outside works just like me,” was how Rabri Devi had told the media. Her search for daughter-in-law has finally ended with Aishwarya who, media reports said, didn’t work anywhere despite receiving many job offers, including one from the World Bank.
Tej Pratap said it was good to see that his parents are happy with the marriage. “I respect the decision of the family. Their happiness is mine happiness,” he told the media on Friday, shortly before leaving for Delhi to meet his father and seek his blessing. His father is currently undergoing treatment at AIIMS, Delhi.
