CM Channi accepts advocate general’s resignation

Chandigarh, 9/11:Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Tuesday announced that he has accepted Advocate General (AG) A P S Deol’s resignation, meeting a key demand of miffed leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.


Sidhu has been opposing Deol’s appointment as the state advocate general. Deol had represented former Punjab DGP Sumedh Singh Saini in cases related to the 2015 post-sacrilege police firing incidents.


A month after announcing his resignation as the state Congress chief, Sidhu withdrew it on Friday. However, he said he would re-assume charge only after the state government replaced the advocate general.
