Lalu's son Tej Pratap tweets 'Miss you papa' after engagement ceremony

Lalu Prasad, convicted in the fodder scam case, could not make it to the ceremony. Tej and Aishwarya exchanged rings at a five-star hotel in Patna. Whereas, all the family members and relatives were present at the venue.

Aishwarya Rai and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav were engaged in a ceremony in a hotel in Patna, Bihar, on Wednesday.

This is the first time that any ceremony in his family is taking place in Lalu's absence. Almost 200 people are expected to be present at the hotel when Tej Pratap and Aishwarya Rai will exchange the rings.

Speaking to Mail Today, Rabri Devi said that her elder son's ring ceremony would have been grander but owing to Lalu's absence the function was a private affair.

Special arrangements have been made for the engagement.

The highlight of the event was the pink and white decoration of flowers which were brought from Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Patna. Aishwarya's mother is reportedly a professor. Several other politicians were also expected to be a part of the engagement ceremony. A source had told the daily, "If we do not get bail for him, we will pray for parole so that he can attend the marriage of his elder son".

His to-be bride Aishwarya is a history graduate and the oldest daughter of six-time RJD MLA, Chandrika Prasad Rai. "If I go to his son's marriage, I will expose him", Tej Pratap Yadav had promised in November.

Earlier, during a press conference in the state capital, Lalu and his wife Rabri Devi said that they would not take dowry from the family of his two sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav's wife.
