April 05, 2018 10:34 pm | Updated 10:34 pm IST - Patna

Tej Pratap, elder son of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad and former State Health Minister, will marry Aishwarya, daughter of RJD MLA Chandrika Rai and grand-daughter of former State Chief Minister Daroga Prasad Rai.

Mr. Rai told mediapersons seeking confirmation of the news, “Yes, it is true.”

Mr. Rai said the date is yet to be decided, although some sources said the wedding will take place on May 12 and the ring ceremony will be held at the end of this month.

In the previous Mahagathbandhan (grand alliance) government, Mr. Rai was the Transport Minister. His father Daroga Prasad was CM of Bihar for less than a year, from February 16 to December 22, 1970. Tej Pratap is an RJD MLA from the Mahua Assembly constituency of Vaishali district.
