"Defend corruption.....get Direct Appointment ".....new ethics of the Collegium"?
The Supreme Court Collegium has recommended senior advocate L. Nageswara Rao, counsel for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in a disproportionate assets case in the Supreme Court, for appointment as Supreme Court judge. Mr. Rao also served as Additional Solicitor General in the Supreme Court for the UPA-II government and the present NDA government before he resigned from the post.
Mr. Rao is also spearheading the Tamil Nadu government's objections against the conduct of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test in 2016-17.
If the appointment goes through, Mr. Rao would be the seventh person in India's legal history to be directly appointed to the Supreme Court.
