The body of former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee was draped in the flag of Kolkata-based football club Mohun Bagan, of which he was a member for about 50 years. His family rejected a proposal from a few CPI(M) leaders to drape his mortal remains in the party's flag. Chatterjee was expelled from the CPI(M) in 2008.
