In 2017, Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi had declared during a press conference in Patna, that they would not take dowry in the marriages of their two sons – Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav. Dowry, though illegal, is prevalent in large parts of the country and is a big social evil in the Hindi heartland which has almost achieved the status of inevitably when it comes to marriages. “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. But Rabri Devi, the wife of Lalu Prasad and former chief minister of Bihar had kicked up a controversy last year when she had said that she won't get a bahu(daughter-in-law) who "goes to mall" and wanted Gharelu (homely) daughter-in-laws.
The news of Tej Pratap's marriage has taken the political world and Bihar by surprise as the RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav is behind bars for his involvement in the fodder scam case. Lalu Prasad has been convicted by the court in multiple cases related to the multi-crore fodder scam. But this sudden news has generated interest among the political observers and people of Bihar as Lalu will be out of jail temporarily and for some days. It is also expected that he will discuss the future strategy of his party with his sons Tej Pratap and Tejaswi Yadav.
