Mukul Rohatgi wins AG race after all (despite RamJet)

The BJP government's law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad signed off on senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi becoming Attorney General of India yesterday, reported the Times of India and other papers citing ministry sources, which is set to be approved by the president in a day or two.

Although Rohatgi's appointment as AG had been in the offing for weeks now, for a while alongside the name of senior counsel Harish Salve, over the weekend papers reported that senior advocate and former BJP member Ram Jethmalani had written a letter formally objecting to Rohatgi's appointment to the post because of his allegedly weak stance against black money - the subject of a case that Jethmalani is fighting in the Supreme Court.

For more on Rohatgi's court craft, as King of Miscellaneous Days and Storyteller Supreme, read Court Witness' profile of the man from 2012.
