Mukul Rohatgi Says No To Govt Offer For Attorney General Post


New Delhi: Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi on Sunday said he has declined the central government’s offer to be the next Attorney General of India.

Rohatgi told PTI that there was no specific reason behind his decision.

The Centre had offered the post of AG to Rohatgi earlier this month to succeed K K Venugopal, 91, whose term will end on September 30.

 However, Rohtagi, while speaking to media said that he thought about the offer again and declined it.

The current attorney general KK Venugopal (91), was re-appointed as the top law officer of the country for three months on 29 June. He was earlier appointed as attorney general in July 2017, succeeding Rohatgi.

But, citing “personal reasons”, Venugopal had been unwilling to continue in the position. Generally, the attorney general usually has a tenure of three years
