Senior Advocate Ajay Mishra to be the new Advocate General for the State of Uttar Pradesh. As per the report of PTI, State Finance Minister Suresh Khanna told reporters yesterday that Ajay Kumar Mishra has been appointed as the new Advocate General of U.P.

This development comes days after the Allahabad High Court directed the State Government to take a decision on the appointment of AG by May 16, 2022.

The bench of Justice Devendra Kumar Upadhyaya and Justice Subhash Vidyarthi had, on May 6, further stressed that the office of Advocate General cannot be permitted to be left vacant.

"Any vacuum in the office of a constitutional functionary may lead to very unsavory situation and that would be completely impermissible not only having regard to the scheme of our constitution but also bearing in mind various statutory functions which are to be performed by the Advocate General," the Bench had remarked.
