    Assam AG quits citing outside interference

    "I have put in my papers to the government on three grounds he said.. While there was outside interference on my work, I was not allowed to work with full dignity as the AG's office required. Moreover, the atmosphere in which I was made to work was not congenial," Choudhury told The Indian Express.

    Choudhury was appointed as advocate general of the state by the BJP-led government of Sarbananda Sonowal on June 28 last year. Choudhury said there was no point clinging to an office where there was no dignity. "I found that there was no point clinging to a post where there is no dignity. Moreover, many a time I was not aware of various decisions of the government which are supposed to be taken in consultation with the advocate general," he said.
