CHANDER MOHAN, son of former Chief Minister and veteran leader Bhajan Lal, left his homeand also disappeared from the political scene. When he appeared after 50 days, he was accompanied by his brand new wife. ‘Nikal jao ghar se aur dobara apna moonh mat dikhana.’ (Get out of my house and don’t show your face again), shouted Bhajan Lal like in a saas-bahu serial. Bhajan Lal disowned him from the family and the government ‘dethroned’ him from the post of Deputy Chief Minister.
