The high profile wedding, which according to reports is set to see over 10,000 guests (an estimate given by RJD leaders), has been the talk of the town as speculations over Lalu Yadav's parole heightened as the marriage date approached. Former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, former Jharkhand CMs Hemant Soren and Babu Lal Marandi and former Union law minister Ram Jethmalani are also expected to join the celebration. His application for parole is being considered and a final decision is likely by Thursday, Inspector General (Prison) Harsh Mangla told PTI on Wednesday.

Lalu is already out on three days parole to attend the marriage of his eldest son Tej Pratap on May 12 in Patna. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar also arrived at the wedding to wish the couple.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday congratulated RJD supremo Lalu Prasad on his eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav's wedding.

Prominent among those who have been invited to the wedding are UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Bihar Governor Satya Pal Mallik, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and Chief Justice of the Patna High Court Rajendra K Menon and Yoga guru Baba Ramdev.


"There will be 200 items in the lavish dinner", a staffer at Lalu Prasad's residence said. The bungalows of both the RJD leaders have been decorated with imported flowers while green chillies and lemons were tied at several points to ward off the evil eye.

He exchanged pleasantries with Prasad and later sat on the dais flanked by the RJD chief and Rabri Devi.

Lalu Yadav's youthful boy and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav and daughter Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha lawmaker, also greeted the chief ministry.

"Laluji is enjoying every moment with his family", an insider said. Parsad, incarcerated at the jail in Jharkhand after his conviction in three fodder scam cases, was being treated at a Ranchi hospital for a host of ailments, including diabetes and kidney disease. She is the daughter of RJD MLA Chandrika Rai.
