New Delhi, Oct 20: Senior counsel Maninder Singh on Saturday resigned as the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) after serving as a government counsel for more than four years.
With Singh’s resignation, the strength of the government advocates reduced to four — Pinki Anand, Atmaran Nadkarni, Aman Lekhi and Vikranjit Banerjee.
Prior to Singh, senior counsel P.S. Narasimha had quit as Additional Solicitor General.
Earlier this year, another ASG Sandeep Sethi had resigned from his post.
Singh along with others was appointed ASG for a three-year term after the Narendra Modi government came to power. He got an extension in 2017.
