Chandigarh, Mar 14 (UNI) Suspended Congress MP, Kuldip Bishnoi, son of former Haryana Chief Minister Bhajan Lal, today resigned from the Lok Sabha in protesting against the disqualification of two MLAs, owing allegiance to his new party, the Haryana Janhit Congress (BL).
" I have sent my resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterji", he told reporters outside the Haryana Vidhan Sabha here.
He said that he would again seek the mandate of the people in the bye election to the Bhiwani constituency from where he was elected to the Lok Sabha in the last polls.
The state assembly Speaker Raghuvir Singh Kadian had yesterday disqualified MLAs Dharam Pal Malik and Rakesh Kamboj under the anti-defection law.
The two legislatures were present in the December two rally of Mr Bhajan Lal in Rohtak where he launched the Haryana Janhit Congress (BL). They were disqualified as they failed to appear before a Vidhan Sabha tribunal hearing the case to explain their position.
The two MLAs, along with Mr Bhajan Lal, were suspended from the Congress after the launch of the new party.
