THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Lashing out at the government over the Advocate General’s issue, Opposition Leader V S Achuthanadan has demanded it to divulge the number of cases in which Dandapani Associates, which is run by the AG’s wife and son,  has appeared against the government in the High Court.

He also dared Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to reveal everything related to the issue.

Dandapani’s son had said that he was withdrawing from the cases against the government only after the High Court criticised the Advocate General’s office, Achuthanandan alleged. This only means that lawyers with the Dandapani Associates had appeared against the government in many of the cases in which Dandapani and others had appeared, Achuthanandan added.

The Opposition Leader alleged that the government had lost many of the cases, which had caused heavy loss to the state exchequer.

The Advocate General’s office had come under fire after the High Court had said it was not averse to disbanding the AG’s office and sacking all government pleaders.
