Lalu Yadav's daughter Rohini to donate kidney to her father
Former Union minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) patriarch Lalu Prasad Yadav (74), who has been suffering from multiple illnesses for quite some time, is set to receive a kidney from his daughter Rohini Acharya. Acharya is a trained doctor and is based in Singapore, where Yadav had gone last month for the treatment of kidney-related issues and was advised a transplant.
'Country needs Yadav to fight tyranny'
Acharya confirmed the reports of her donating her kidney to Yadav saying that she was proud to do so. In a tweet shared last month, Acharya said the country needed Yadav to fight tyranny. Yadav is currently in Delhi, out on bail in the fodder scam case. He was hospitalized many times in Delhi and Ranchi. Acharya is Yadav and Rabri Devi's youngest daughter.
Rohini Acharya's wedding in 2002 grabbed attention
Acharya married Samaresh Singh, a US-based software engineer, in 2002. Although she lives in Singapore, she actively comments on Indian politics, especially Bihar. Singh is the son of Rao Ranvijay Singh, a Mumbai-based Income Tax official. Her wedding had garnered the limelight as Yadav's brother-in-law Subhash Yadav had allegedly picked up 50 new cars from showrooms by force to ferry the wedding guests.
Acharya's Diwali greetings were a tribute to Lalu
