Translation: 
Maharaja Pariksit said: O brahmana, according to what I have heard from you, all the assembled kings, sages and demigods were delighted to see the wonderful festivities of King Ajatasatru’s Rajasuya sacrifice, with the sole exception of Duryodhana. Please tell me why this was so, my lord.

sri-badarayanir uvaca
pitamahasya te yaj├▒e
 rajasuye mahatmanah
bandhavah paricaryayam
 tasyasan prema-bandhanah

Translation: 
Sri Badarayani said: At the Rajasuya sacrifice of your saintly grandfather, his family members, bound by their love for him, engaged themselves in humble services on his behalf.

Purport:
King Yudhisthira did not force his relatives to accept different tasks at the sacrifice. Rather, out of their love for him they volunteered for such duties.
