  • RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Rabri Devi during the wedding ceremony of his elder son Tej Pratap at Veterinary College Ground in Patna on Saturday

Sources said an elated Lalu called up his would-be daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai to say her arrival was proving to be lucky for him.

Tej Pratap's baarat (wedding procession) comprised of 200 cars, horses and brass bands. After the wedding, Prasad will fly to Ranchi on Monday to report to jail authorities.

The provisional bail was granted by Justice Apresh Kumar Singh.

Lalu Prasad, who was undergoing treatment at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) here after he was brought here from AIIMS on May 1, is now in Patna on three days parole to attend the marriage of his eldest son on May 12.

Fierce political rivalry spanning over decades notwithstanding, Kumar and Prasad have been close friends since the 1970s, when they had started off as student leaders and were active participants in the movement launched by Jayaprakash Narayan.

But on Friday, the Ranchi High Court granted him six weeks bail. "Invitations have been sent to nearly every major political figure and luminaries from various walks of life", Bihar RJD president Ram Chandra Purve said here.

Among the baratis included Akhilesh Yadav and his wife Dimple Yadav, Union Minister and LJP Chief Ram Vilas Paswan, local MP and dissident BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha, veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani, former Union Ministers Prafull Patel and Tariq Anwar, yoga guru Baba Ramdev. Bihar's popular "litti-chokha", Amritsari kulcha, imarti, gulab jamun, karhai paneer and kulfi besides continental dishes will be served to the guests. Lalu Prasad is said to be medically fit for traveling from RIM's.

As the chief minister arrived at the veterinary college grounds in Patna - the wedding venue - he was greeted with loud cheers.

However, the highlight of the wedding was Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar's warm embrace with Lalu Prasad after nearly nine months after the breakup of the grand alliance in Bihar.

"Laluji is enjoying every moment with his family", an insider said.

Lalu's family had invited all virtual who's who of the country's power circuit for the wedding as the RJD boss was himself in judicial custody in fodder scam cases since December last.
