Assam's Advocate General Chinmoy Choudhury resignsNovember 16 2017
More than a year after he was appointed, Advocate General for the state of Assam Chinmoy Choudhury has resigned from the post.
Confirming the development to Bar & Bench, Choudhary said,
“I had given some suggestions regarding the administration of the Advocate General’s office, but they [the state government] were not willing to listen. Therefore, I resigned.”
Choudhury was appointed as Advocate General in July 2016, after the BJP came to power in Assam one month before that.
He has over three decades of experience as a lawyer, having joined the Bar in 1983. He was made Senior Government pleader in 1999, and went on to become Central Government Standing Counsel at the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT), Gauhati.
