PATNA: Laloo Yadav has made alternative news again, by becoming the first politician in the independent India to solemnise the weddings of three daughters within three months.

All three events were big political shows too, with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and Congress president Sonia Gandhi among those attending. The last two marriages saw Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and several of his party and Cabinet colleagues turn up. Laloo’s fourth daughter was wed on January 28, the fifth on March 11, and his sixth on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya on April 24. With this, Laloo has one daughter left in his wedding planner.

Lalu’s wife Rabri Devi is a member of the Bihar Legislative Council. Laloo’s elder son Tej Pratap is a student of BA (Political Science) in Patna’s B N College. The younger son, Tejasawi, is a cricketer, and may join politics given that he campaigned at several places in the 2010 Assembly elections. Party sources said that he is getting trained as he is still too young to be fielded as candidate in the electoral battlefield.
