Mulayam Singh yadav, Lalu Prasad Yadav and Narendra Modi, otherwise arch rivals, forgot their political differences and displayed a rare comradrie when they smiled, shook hands, chatted and walked together to the grand stage erected for the ceremony.

Grand preparations had been made for the pre-wedding ceremony. About 550 “superior quality” Swiss cottages inside a stadium, besides 250 “ordinary” cottages for 15,00 people on a college ground were put in place. Food of ‘unmatched’ variety were prepared for 1.25 lakh people. Photo: Rajeev Bhatt

Mr. Modi’s presence at the pre-wedding ceremony is being seen as his attempt to reach out to the Opposition, especially the SP which is leading the unification attempt of the ’Janata Parivar’, ahead of the Budget session where the BJP government needs numbers in the Rajya Sabha to pass crucial Bills.

Akhilesh Yadav, Ramgopal Yadav, and other Samajwadi Party leaders welcome Lalu Prasad Yadav and other guests in Saifai on Friday for the ceremony.
