'I offered to resign to maintain dignity of Solicitor-General's office: Subramaniam

New Delhi , Sun, 10 Jul 2011 ANI

New Delhi, July 10 (ANI): Solicitor-General Gopal Subramaniam said on Sunday that he had offered his resignation to maintain the dignity of the office he holds.


He admitted that he was upset about the way the Solicitor-General's office was being treated by the government in the case involving the 2G scam.


Subramaniam, the second top law officer of the country, earlier in the day met President Pratibha Devisingh Patil.


According to reports, Subramaniam is understood to have spoken to Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily to make the offer of resignation in the wake of Union Communications Minister Kapil Sibal's decision to overlook the government law officers.


Moily, however, has rejected his resignation.


Subramaniam had in November last year come under fire from the government after the Supreme Court asked it to file an affidavit on alleged "inaction" by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in preventing the then Telecom Minister A Raja from allocating 2G spectrum in a controversial manner.


Subramaniam had sought to be dismissive about it, but the government had subsequently asked Attorney General G E Vahanvati to represent the Prime Minister in the apex Court in place of the Solicitor General.


Subramaniam continued to represent the Department of Telecom (DoT).


The government had also inducted eminent lawyer K K Venugopal to represent CBI along with Additional Solicitor General Haren Raval. (ANI)
