Lalu Yadav’s son and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Tejashwi Prasad Yadav had left for Singapore on Saturday along with the party’s National General Secretary Bhola Yadav.

Before the operation, Rohini Acharya had tweeted stating they are ready for the medical procedure. She wrote, “Ready to rock and roll. Wish me a good luck”
