Mohan Parasaran new Solicitor General
New Delhi: Additional Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran was today appointed as the country`s new Solicitor General following the resignation of senior advocate Rohinton Nariman from the post.
His tenure will be for three years.
His name was cleared by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) and a formal notification was issued today.
Earlier this month, Nariman had resigned as Solicitor General of India amid speculation that the decision came over his differences with Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.
Parasaran, a senior advocate of the Supreme Court and son of former Attorney General K Parasaran, was appointed as ASG by the first UPA government in July 2004. He continued in office in UPA II.
Last week Parasaran had said that he would be responsive to the "present needs of the society."
He said matters relating to public interest would be his priority.
