Solicitor General Subramaniam offers to resign

New Delhi: The second most important law officer in the country Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam has offered to resign from his post, but Law Minister Veerappa Moily has not accepted his resignation, according to sources.

Moily spoke to him and asked him to hold on. The offer to resign seems to have come following a host of issues, including the general perception that the Solicitor General has not been able to defend the government in court.

The Law Ministry has said that it has nothing to do with the black money issue.

In the past, there was a confrontation between the Solicitor General and Moily when the Solicitor General was believed to have resigned, but was again requested by Moily not to do so.
