Patna: The drama at the 10 Circular Road in Patna reached a crescendo on Thursday evening when Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President Lalu Prasad Yadav, after obtaining a 3-day parole from a jail in Ranchi, arrived in Patna to attend his first son's wedding amidst warm welcome by his family members, party leaders, supporters, and well-wishers.

Though in Patna for only a very short period of time, the fact did not dampen the spirit of his family members who celebrated his coming back to his home as if he was granted a bail or was released from the prison for good. The entire house from outside was decorated in green lights to reflect the party color as a large crowd gathered outside to get a glimpse of the man who makes Hotwar Jail in Ranchi his home after being convicted in a number of fodder scam cases.

Yadav, traveling business class in an Indigo flight from Ranchi accompanied by party leader Bhola Yadav, arrived at Patna's Jaya Prakash Narayan Airport around 6:30 pm where he was greeted by hundreds of people including his two sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav, and eldest daughter Misa Bharti.

Two doctors of Ranchi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) were also assigned to Yadav for his 3-day visit to Patna.

The former Chief Minister of Bihar who remains at a Ranchi hospital on health reasons, was wheeled out of the airplane. Tej Pratap Yadav then steered the wheelchair to the waiting car that brought the RJD chief and other family members back to 10 Circular Road where hundreds of people chanting 'Lalu Yadav Zindabad' in the presence of media-persons had gathered to get a glimpse of the leader or to snag a soundbite that Yadav is known for.

Yadav's return to his home occurred 138 days after he was arrested and sent to jail in Ranchi following his conviction in the fodder scam.

The wedding of Tej Pratap Yadav is on May 12. He got engaged to Aishwarya Rai, the daughter of party leader Chandrika Rai and grand-daughter of former Bihar Chief Minister Daroga Rai on May 12.

The RJD chief will be taken back to Ranchi on May 14.
