APS DEOL IS NEW AG OF PUNJAB
- The Punjab government on Monday appointed senior advocate and a distinguished criminal lawyer Amar Preet Singh Deol as the advocate general of the state replacing Atul Nanda.
- After Atul Nanda resigned soon after a change at the helm of the Congress government in the state last week. Before Deol’s formal appointment, the Punjab government was believed to considered senior advocates DS Patwalia and then Anmol Ratan Singh Sidhu for the position.
- Deol will be the senior-most law officer of Punjab and would enjoy a rank equivalent to a cabinet minister.
