Ex-SG should himself speak out about what went wrong: BJP

BJP said it will ask the government in Parliament the reason which led India`s second highest law officer, Solicitor Rohinton Nariman, to resign.



New Delhi: BJP Tuesday said it will ask the government in Parliament the reason which led India`s second highest law officer, Solicitor General Rohinton Nariman, to resign from his post and maintained that he himself should speak out on what triggered the action.
"If there are differences between the Law Minister and the Solicitor General, then any self-respecting Solicitor General will move out from there. We will ask the government in Parliament why this happened and they will have to answer," senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi told reporters in reply to a question.

"Nariman should himself speak out about what was the point on which he had strong difference and he moved out," Joshi said.

He pointed out that this is the "second or the third case" in which the Solicitor General has resigned in this government.

Nariman is the second Solicitor General in UPA-II government to submit his resignation. He reportedly put in his papers yesterday due to differences with Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.

Earlier, in July 2011, the then Solicitor General Gopal Subramanian had resigned from the post when the government had asked Nariman to fight the 2G spectrum allocation case.
