Lalu Prasad, who is now serving a jail term, was not present at the ring ceremony.
Sources claim that Lalu Yadav is likely to move the court for parole to attend the marriage of his elder son scheduled to be held on May 12 in Patna.
However, in a hush-hush ceremony yesterday, the duo got engaged at a five-star hotel in Patna. Her fiance Tej Pratap Yadav is Lalu Yadav's eldest son.
"We are completely against dowry system and will not take one paisa from the bride's family when my two sons are ready to get married", Lalu had said according to a media report. Twitter was abuzz with engagement pictures of the Yadav scion and Aishwarya Rai.
Special arrangements have been made for the engagement. The flowers for the beautification had reportedly been brought from Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Pune. People have started gathering at the Rabri Devi's residence in Patna to congratulate the family for the engagement. Aishwarya, 25, who is a management graduate, was flanked by her parents Chandrika and Purnima Rai and siblings during the ceremony. Several other politicians were also expected to be a part of the engagement ceremony.
Tej Pratap, Bihar's former health minister, is also the eldest of the 9 children of former Bihar Chief Minister, Lalu Prasad Yadav and his wife, Rabri Devi.
His would-be father-in-law Chandrika Rai, six-time MLA, was the transport minister then. "If I go to his son's marriage, I will expose him", Tej Pratap Yadav had promised in November.
Though Tej Pratap's sisters Misa Bharti, Hema and brother Tejaswi Yadav attended the event along with mother Rabri Devi, it was the absence of Lalu Prasad which was missed by the entire family.
