69-year-old Lalu Prasad, who has been convicted in three cases of fodder scam, is now undergoing treatment in Ranchi's Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).
A galaxy of political leaders from around the country, majority from the Opposition parties, attended the grand wedding ceremony of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav's elder son Tej Pratap Yadav in Patna on Saturday. Just a few hours ago, brother Tejashwi Yadav posted a video of wedding celebrations and now we have laid our hands upon a video of Lalu Prasad Yadav's residence.

What added to the celebrations was that Lalu not just got a three-day parole to attend the wedding but also a provisional bail by the Jharkhand high court for his medical treatment.
Among other notable guests have been Bihar Governor Satya Pal Mallik, Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan and veteran socialist chief Sharad Yadav.

Last year, a fifth of the park's southern sector was deforested owing to illegal charcoal production, the park said. The Foreign Office said it was in close contact with the authorities in the DRC and was supporting the families.
Tej Pratap Yadav tied the knot with Aishwarya Rai, daughter of former transport minister Chandrika Rai, at the veterinary college ground here on Saturday, amid moments of bonhomie between RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Bihar Chief Minister and JD (U) president Nitish Kumar.
Lalu Prasad was jailed in December after conviction in the fodder scam.
Tej Pratap Yadav, the oldest of the nine siblings, is now an first-time lawmaker and was a health ministry before last July, once Nitish Kumar dropped the RJD and formed a new government with the BJP.
More than 30,000 people were set to attend the event, and many had poured in from all across Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal, RJD state President Ram Chander Purve said.
