RJD leader and former Bihar minister, Tej Pratap Yadav, recently tied the knot with Aishwarya Roy at a glittering wedding function in Patna.
More than 30,000 people had reportedly attended Tej Pratap’s wedding. Among his star guests were former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, Congress veteran Digvijay Singh, NCP leader Praful Patel, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan, Patna Sahib MP Shatrughan Sinha and Sharad Yadav. Lalu Yadav, currently serving jail sentence in fodder scam case, was given a special permission by Ranchi High Court to attend his son’s wedding.
The wedding was marred by incidents of looting and the death of few RJD leaders as they returned home after the function.
Meanwhile, the first post-wedding photo of Tej Pratap and Aishwarya has gone viral on social media. This was after an Instagram account belonging to former Bihar health minister posted a photo of Tej Pratap and Aishwarya on a bicycle.
Social media users were quick to draw a parallel with Tej Pratap-Aishwarya photo and Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. While many congratulated the newly wed couple for a successful life together with ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ tag, others thanked them for choosing an environment-friendly mode of transportation.
Aishwarya is a history graduate and the oldest daughter of six-time RJD MLA, Chandrika Prasad Rai. Rai was also a minister in the previous RJD government. Aishwarya’s mother is reportedly a professor.
Tej Pratap, for his part, is the elder son of former Bihar Chief Minister, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi. He also held the health ministry’s portfolio in the Nitish Kumar government before the JDU decided to dump the RJD and the Congress to align with the BJP.
