No mall-going girls as bride for my elder son: Rabri Devi

No mall-going girls as bride for my elder son: Rabri Devi
Her eldest son Tej Pratap is reportedly mired in controversy over the construction of biggest shopping mall in Patna on a land owned by Lalu Prasad’s family. But Rabri Devi feels that girls who love visiting shopping malls or movie theatres are a strict no, no as a prospective daughter-in-law.

“I want a daughter-in-law, who should be like me....well-cultured, well-groomed who could manage house-hold affairs, look after domestic assignments, respect elders, and, if required, take care of outside work too,” she told a national daily.

Rabri, who served as Bihar Chief Minister from 1997 to 2005, said this in response to a query related to the possibility of wedding of Tej Pratap, who is Health Minister in Nitish Cabinet.

Admitting that her daughters were looking for brides for both Tej Pratap as well as Tejaswi Yadav (who is also Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister), Rabri said, “Tej Pratap and Tejaswi’s sisters are on the job. They know their brothers’ likes and dislikes well. They will find suitable brides.” “Even media persons can also suggest a few names,” she hastened to add.

Tej Pratap, who is said to be deeply religious person, returned to the State Capital from Vrindavan after offering prayers in the neighbouring State Uttar Pradesh. He has been offering prayers so as to tide over the ‘crisis’ hanging like a Damocles' sword over Lalu’s family for the last couple of months.

“All these allegations against us (of benami property) is a baseless charge made by a jobless BJP leader. The property we have is in public domain. And it has been shown in Income Tax return, after paying due taxes,” said Rabri, who won the legal battle in the disproportionate assets (DA) case from the apex court.
