On Friday, The Madras High Court dismissed with cost of a PIL petition seeking refusal of the appointment of two Tamil Nadu Additional Advocates General.
A Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice PD Audikesavalu found that there was no merit in the plea and also recounted that the Court had earlier asked the petitioner to reconsider his plea and the Court also said that in this case Article 165 of the Constitution have been referred.
The petition had challenged as unconstitutional a appointment of Senior Advocate V Krishnamurthy and Advocate Amit Anand Tiwari as AAGs of Tamil Nadu to represent the State before the Supreme Court.
With these observations, the plea was dismissed.
“The authority to appoint in this case is under a notification issued by the government itself……. the functionary to carry out the relevant action.”
