Chandigarh, Jun 2 (UNI) Former Chief Minister and Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) leader today took oath as a Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA).
Mr Bhajan Lal, who was elected to the state assembly from Adampur constituency in the recent byelections, was accompanied by his elder son Kuldeep Singh Bishnoi along with other party leaders as Vidhan Sabha Speaker Raghuvir Singh Kadian administered him the oath.
However, his younger son and Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Chander Mohan was not present on the occasion.
The Adampur bypoll was necessitated after Mr Bhajan Lal was disqualified as MLA under the anti-defection law for launching HJC in December last year even when he was a member of the Congress.
While the ailing leader has installed Mr Kuldeep Bishnoi as the president of the HJC, his younger son still continues to be the deputy of Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
