The Law Ministry has thrown open its hands stating that there were no provisions for withdrawing the resignation after it has already been sent to the President.
Dinakaran had put in his papers on Jul 29. He had chose the day considering that the Rajya Sabha Chairman-appointed Inquiry Committee was scheduled to start a probe the very next day into the various allegations in his name as part of the impeachment proceedings.
Dinakaran was accused of charges of graft, land grabbing charges and corruption. Sources have stated that once the resignation is submitted, it is accepted by default and cannot be withdrawn under no condition whatsoever.
Keeping in mind this fact, Justice Sonam Phintso Wangdi has already been appointed as Dinakaran's replacement at the Sikkim High Court.
Dinakaran had to face setbacks from the Supreme Court after his petitions were dismissed that had challenged the charges made against him.
