New Delhi: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy Saturday expressed displeasure over Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi appearing in the Supreme Court on behalf of Kerala's bar owners.
"I will write to Prime Minister about Mukul Rohtagi representing Kerala bar owners in SC. A-G representing bar owners in Supreme Court is unconstitutional how can Law Ministry give him nod for this, Chandy said.
"This is unfortunate. The decision taken by Kerala government is non political. We expect full support from central government but this is not happening. We want to eradicate liquor evil from state. We want better sovereign system in our country into matter like this," he added.
Rohatgi was appealing against the Kerala High Court order which upheld the state government's decision to restrict liquor licenses to 5-star bar owners.
