Title:- SC UPHOLDS THE APPOINTMENT OF GUJARAT LOKYUKTA.

Description:- Ahmedabad: The Supreme Court has upheld the appointment of Justice RA Mehta
as the Gujarat Lokayukta. Governor Kamla Beniwal had appointed Justice Mehta as the state
Lokayukta in August 2011.
CM Narendra Modi, however, had appealed against this appointment claiming that the
appointment was unconstitutional as Beniwal had appointed Mehta without consulting him and
the state Cabinet.
A bench of justices BS Chauhan and FM Ibrahim Kalifulla dismissed the Gujarat government’s
plea saying that the Governor is bound to act under the advice of the Council of Ministers, but
the appointment of Justice Mehta is right as it was done in consultation with the Chief Justice of
the Gujarat High Court.
