Patna, April 18: Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav got engaged to Aishwarya Rai, daughter of senior party leader Chandrika Rai in Patna on April 18, 2018.
Former Bihar Health Minister Pratap, who celebrated his 29th birthday two days ago, exchanged rings with 25-year-old Aishwarya Rai at a traditional function.
RJD chief Lalu Yadav who is in jail in connection with three fodder scams was not present for the engagement ceremony.
The ceremony was held at the five-star Hotel Maurya in Patna, with Lalu’s wife and former CM Rabri Devi overseeing the arrangements.
The ceremony was attended by close family members and relatives including Pratap’s sister and RJD Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti and his brother and the Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav.
Aishwarya Rai is also the grand-daughter of former Chief Minister Daroga Prasad Rai.
Aishwarya completed her higher secondary education from Patna and then completed MBA from Amity University in Noida.
Tej Pratap formally joined politics ahead of the 2015 Bihar Assembly polls and represents the Mahua Assembly.
For the wedding, which is likely to take place next month here, Lalu Prasad is expected to seek judicial permission to attend it.
Lalu Prasad’s youngest daughter Raj Laxmi tied the knot with the grand-nephew of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav in 2014.
