Heartiest Congratulations Laluji: Mamata Banerjee


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

“Heartiest congratulations Laluji on the happy occasion of the marriage of your son. Also happy too that you got bail. Best wishes to your family,” Banerjee tweeted.

Tej Pratap Yadav got engaged to senior Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Chandrika Rai’s daughter Aishwarya last month and the wedding is scheduled for Saturday.

RJD president Lalu Prasad, who’s serving sentences in fodder scam cases, was today granted a five-day parole to attend the wedding of his elder son later this week.

Lalu, who has been convicted in three fodder scam cases by a special CBI court in Ranchi since December last year, is ailing and currently undergoing treatment at RIMS hospital in the Jharkhand capital. He will be flown to Patna this evening.
