New Delhi, Nov 19: The government of India urged the Attorney General GE Vahanvati, not Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium to represent Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the Supreme Court regarding 2G Spectrum scandal case.

After the announcement of the decision, Subramanium claimed, "It is not a question of replacement but of better coordination."

"I will continue to represent the central government and the department of telecom on the issue while the attorney general will represent the prime minister," he added.

The Supreme Court on Nov 18 asked the government to submit an affidavit on alleged "inaction" in responding to a plea seeking sanction to prosecute former Telecom Minister A Raja in the spectrum case.

However, according to some government sources, the affidavit is likely to be filed in Supreme Court on Friday, Nov 19.
