Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his sister Priyanka Gandhi and several other prominent leaders would attend the marriage function of RJD Chief Lalu Prasad’s eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav.
Sources at RJD said here today that besides Rahul and Priyanka, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, his son and former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav would also attend the function.
Similarly, CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, senior CPI leaders D Raja and Atul Kumar Anjan, former Bihar chief minister Jeetan Ram Manjhi and noted lawyer and Rajya Sabha member Ram Jethmalani would also grace the occasion.
The official residence of RJD chief Mr Prasad at 10, Circular Road had been illuminated with decorative bulbs.
Since Lalu family had been facing difficult time in the recent past, family members and supporters have hanged garlands of lemons and chillies on the main gate of the residence in their belief that these would protect them from ‘bad motives of their opponents’.
The bride Aishwarya Rai’s father and MLA Chandrika Rai is regularly supervising arrangements being made for ‘Jaymala’ and serving of food to members of marriage party at Patna Veterinary College ground.
Around 20,000 people would be able to watch ‘Jaymala’ function when bridegroom and bride would garland each other at a raised platform.
Tej Pratap’s marriage procession would start from the official residence of RJD Chief at 10, Circular Road and would go straight to Veterinary College ground.
The marriage would be solmenised at the official residence of bride’s father Mr Rai at 5 Circular Road. Patna police have made special arrangements for the security of VVIP and VIP guests.
Additional police personnel would be deployed at Veterinary College ground and its adjoining areas.
