Is it curtains for the marriage of Tej Pratap and Aishwayra Roy?
The uber Delhi-groomed girl Aishwarya Roy, who is the estranged wife of RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s elder son Tej Pratap Yadav, was seen on Friday coming out of the house of her mother-in-law Rabri Devi with tears in her eyes.
She came out with some bag and baggage. Though, Tej Pratap’s divorce petition filed six months after their marriage in May 2018 is pending before a court, his wife Aishwarya has been known to spend a lot of time at her in-laws’ place which is a few hundred metres from the house of her father, RJD MLA Chandrika Roy.
However, an hour after Aishwarya reached Rabri Devi’s 10, Circular Road residence, in the afternoon on Friday, her car was called.
A few minutes later, Aishwarya was seen walking out of the house hurriedly, wiping tears with her dupatta.
Television news channels showed her carrying a couple of bags as she walked towards the car, boarded it and left. Close aides of either family were not forthcoming about the incident. They only said it was a “private matter”. Though, there are rumours that it could all be the end of the relationship.
Yadav’s decision to seek divorce was met with strong disagreement from his family, who stood by Aishwarya. Aishwarya is an urbane management graduate from Delhi whose late grandfather Daroga Prasad Rai was the chief minister of Bihar in the 1970s.
Repeated attempts by Lalu Prasad, who is in Ranchi serving sentences in fodder scam cases, to make his maverick elder son withdraw the divorce petition bore no results. According to News18, Tej Yadav had thrown a fit when the party, in an apparent bid to placate Chandrika Roy, fielded him as its Lok Sabha candidate from Saran, a stronghold of the RJD supremo.
After his humiliating defeat at the hands of sitting BJP MP Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Roy blamed it on “non-cooperation” from Lalu Prasad’s family, RJD sources, said as per a News 18 report. Roy recently made his displeasure when he did not attend a meeting of party MLAs and refused to get his membership renewed.
