Kapil Sibal, the telecom minister is firm that he will field Rohinton Nariman in the case based on PIL against him and the attorney general, solicitor general withdrew himself from all court work from Monday.
What seems to be a confrontation with sibal turned into a battle for the protection of the dignity of his office. He met President PRATIBHA PATIL as well as attorney general G E VAHANVATI on Monday.
Sources said that the PM would take a call on whether to accept SUBRAMANIAM’S resignation on Monday.
While law ministry sources denied that other law officers like Amarjit Singh Chandiok had resigned in solidarity with SUBRAMANIAM former judges and constitutional experts stepped forward to defend him “Any self-respecting law officer, if slighted by the government , will take an identical decision” former justice of India J S Verma said, he was seconded by former attorney Soli J Sorabjee.
Looks like he will rather quit than allow his dignity to be compromised.
