PATNA: RJD chief Lalu Prasad who is serving jail term in fodder scam cases was on Wednesday granted five-day parole to attend his son’s wedding in Patna.
His eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav is set to tie the knot with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of RJD leader and former minister, on May 12 for which massive preparations are going on.
The grant of parole has brought cheers among the family members and his supporters. Prasad had earlier missed the engagement ceremony of his son held in Patna last month. His absence had robbed off all colours of the function as it was kept simple and remained basically the family affairs.
The parole was granted after he submitted a petition to the jail authorities seeking his temporary release from jail on Tuesday and the hospital authorities gave clearance for his travel.
Prasad who is lodged in jail for the past about five months is currently undergoing treatment at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Ranchi for various health complications.
He has been diagnosed with at least 15 different kinds of disease which include Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, peri-anal abscess, cardiac problems and acute kidney injury.
