The Sangai Express: Imphal: Sunday, May 07, 2017.
An RTI has been filed in the Cabinet Secretariat seeking the name and information of the person to be appointed as the new Advocate General of Manipur.
Sources said the RTI sought details of the proposed Advocate General of the State, if any, as it is not clear whether the State Government has filled up the post of Advocate General, which was lying vacant after the formation of the BJP-led coalition Government in the State.
Mention may be made that High Court Bar Association Manipur, and All Manipur Bar Association had staged protests against the proposed appointment of a non-local as the Advocate General of the State.
The State Government has not yet issued any official notification of the appointment of the Constitutional post.
