KK Venugopal to be new Attorney General

NEW DELHI: Senior advocate K K Venugopal's name has been cleared for appointment as the Attorney General for India following the decision of Mukul Rohatgi to step down as the top law officer.

The proposal to appoint the 86-year-old veteran lawyer as the successor of Rohatgi was discussed before the departure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his recent visit to the US, Portugal and the Netherlands.

"Venugopal had a meeting with Modi before his departure to a three-nation
," sources said.

When contacted today and asked about his priorities as the Attorney General, Venugopal said "I will speak only after the notification is issued."
