Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal, who rebelled against the Congress party, was on Tuesday disqualified from the state assembly under the anti-defection law.
The order of Speaker Raghubir Singh Kadian came on a petition filed against Lal seeking that he be disqualified as a legislator since he had voluntarily given up the membership of the Congress on whose ticket he was elected and formed a new party along with his son and parliamentarian Kuldip Bishnoi.
