Admirers of Railway Minister Lalu Prasad and his wife Rabri Devi are building a temple dedicated to the couple in Bihar. It will come up in a village in Kaimur district, about 150 km from Patna.
"Hundreds of villagers attended the bhumi puja (ground breaking ceremony) on Sunday," Rajeshwar Yadav, the brain behind the Lalu-Rabri temple, told IANS on Tuesday.
He said that life-sized idols of Lalu Prasad, who heads the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), and his wife Rabri Devi, both former chief ministers of Bihar, would be installed in the temple.
The temple would cost Rs 5.4 million, Yadav said. Land for the temple has been donated by a village woman.
