SOMETHING OUR ADVOCATE GENERAL SHOULD LEARN FROM THE SOLICITOR GENERAL by Adv. Aires Rodrigues, Ribandar

Solicitor General of India Mr. Gopal Subramaniam has rightly resigned on being slighted by the Government on not being consulted in the appointment of a private lawyer to appear in the 2G scam case. By resigning he has upheld the dignity of that high constitutional post he holds as the second highest ranking Law officer of the country.
In sharp contrast Advocate General of Goa Mr. Subodh Kantak remains unfazed though slighted on so many occasions. The former Governor of Goa Mr. S.C.Jamir had even appointed a special legal advisor at Raj Bhavan in a clear rebuff to the Advocate General. More recently the Goa Raj Bhavan has engaged a private lawyer to represent it before the High Court bypassing a constitutionally appointed Advocate General who is otherwise supposed to tender legal advice and appear on behalf of the Governor.
It is a sad State of affairs when persons holding important constitutional positions also become thick skinned like the politicians. At least Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam has asserted that all is not lost and that there is still some room of hope for ethics and morality to maintain the dignity of high constitutional posts.

When the government and most of those appointed by the government are shameless; from where will ethics and morality emerge? It is not in their dictionary.
