Top lawyer Mukul Rohatgi rejects Modi govt's offer to be Attorney General again: reports

Mukul Rohatgi's latest stint as the AG was supposed to begin on 1 October 2022.

Days after reports suggested that Mukul Rohatgi would once again be the Indian government's top lawyer, the veteran advocate is reported to have turned down the offer to be the Attorney General of India.

Rohatgi's latest stint as the AG was supposed to begin on 1 October 2022. But he turned down the government's offer just days prior, news reports quoting sources said on 25 September 2022.
