Ranchi, Dec 18: A former Bihar Health Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tej Pratap Yadav on Tuesday met his ailing jailed father and party chief Lalu Prasad in a hospital here.
In normal course, the meeting day at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) is Saturday, so Tej Pratap had to obtain special permission of the hospital authorities to meet his father. Lalu Yadav is being treated in the paying ward of RIMS.
Tej Pratap is understood to have discussed his divorce and political situation in Bihar, among other issues, with his father. He also enquired about Lalu's health from the doctors.
Tej Pratap had last time met his father in November, after filing a divorce petition to end his marriage with Aishwarya Rai. From there he had gone to Vrindavan.
Lalu Prasad is said to have become tense after knowing about the developments involving his son. His blood pressure and sugar level had both spiked. His condition has improved over the last week and he has applied for bail on medical grounds.
