Even though Lalu’s financial condition was not good, Lalu was married to Rabri. Everyone in her family was against the marriage due to monetary reasons and the age difference. However, her father remained firm on his decision.

He saw all the required qualities in Lalu Prasad Yadav. The two finally got married on 1st June 1973 and the journey started from this point.
