As his brother and Haryana Janhit Congress chief Kuldeep Bishnoi merged his party with the Congress in Delhi, Chander Mohan was seen standing with other party functionaries.
The move is aimed at tapping non-Jat votes in the state.
With both offices in the same neighbourhood, Bhyana’s workers soon learnt from the celebrations that the high court had disqualified their MLA.
The court also disqualfied them from any remunerative political post they may have held since giving up the HJC membership.
Once known as Chand Mohammad, husband of Fiza, Chander Mohan is now the official candidate of Haryana Janhit Congress.
Another round of governors’ appointments is said to be around the corner now that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is back from the US.
Meanwhile, BJP, Congress and Haryana Janhit Congress have recently opened their party offices in sectors 8 and 9.
