Patna, Dec 3 (IANS) Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav on Saturday made it clear that he would prefer an arranged marriage like his younger brother and refuted news that he had plans to marry Yoga guru Ramdev’s niece.
“I will marry as per my parents wishes; it will be an arranged marriage in the age old tradition of our family,” Tej Pratap Yadav told media.
Ramdev, who visited RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Friday morning had also refuted the reports. “It is nothing but gossip spread by a section of the media,” he said.
Tej Pratap Yadav said his father Lalu and mother Rabri Devi would take the final call on his and his younger brother’s wedding.
“Our parents will fix our marriages,” he said and added that media would be informed at the “right time”.
The more articulate Tejaswi,26 — who is Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister — and Tej Pratap Yadav, 28, are the two most eligible bachelors in Bihar.
In October, Tejaswi had received 44,000 marriage proposals on a WhatsApp contact number which was provided for complaints over bad roads, officials had said.
