Ex-CM Bhajan Lal disqualified from assembly

Last updated on: March 25, 2008 15:30 IST

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.

The petition was filed by Congress legislator Shadi Lal Batra on January 2 after Bishnoi announced floating of Haryana Janhit Congress (BL) at a rally in Rohtak on December 2.
