EX- BSP MP U. P. AD­VO­CATE- GEN.

- AGE COR­RE­SPON­DENT

This is one ap­point­ment that has left ev­ery­one flum­moxed, most of all Sa­ma­jwadi lead­ers.

A BSP MP, who was ousted from the BSP when he pub­licly praised the then Gu­jarat chief min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi, has been ap­pointed the new ad­vo­cate- gen­eral of Ut­tar Pradesh. The new ad­vo­cate gen­eral is Vi­jay Ba­hadur Singh, a for­mer BSP MP.

Mr Singh, a lawyer by pro­fes­sion, had re­port­edly ap­proached the BJP for a ticket in the Lok Sabha elec­tions but was de­nied the same. He then joined the SP and now has been re­warded with the top law of­fi­cer’s po­si­tion. Mr Singh re­places se­nior lawyer VC Misra, who was sacked on July 29 by the Akhilesh Yadav gov­ern­ment for rea­sons not known.
