Gujarat’s Tushar Mehta new AG?

November 02 2016

The changed attitude of the judiciary towards the Central Government has led the Modi-Shah duo not to give a second chance to Mukul Rohtagi as Attorney General of India. Rohtagi’s term will end on 18th June 2017. He is known to be very good palls with Modi’s bête noire, Finance Minister Arun Jaitely. So now it is also unclear if Rohtagi will even complete his full term.
Sources said that Rohtagi could not meet the expectations of the Centre. As a result, Amit Shah has cleverly played the trump card to suggest Tushar Mehta’s name for this position; Mehta was once Gujarat’s Advocate General and is now Additional Solicitor General in Supreme Court. Scuttlebutt is, Mehta’s Gujarat conncetion is what has opened the doors for him
