D C Raina appointed J&K advocate general
Srinagar, Jul 11: Governor N N Vohra today appointed D C Raina as the Advocate General of Jammu and Kashmir.
"In exercise of the powers conferred under section 42 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir and in supersession of notification SRO 180 dated June 3, 2016, the Governor is pleased to appoint Shri D C Raina, Senior Advocate as Advocate General for the State,” said an order by Department of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs.
Raina has held the same post in 2016 when Governor's rule was imposed in the state following the demise of then chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and subsequent stalemate between the PDP and BJP over government formation.
The Governor also accorded sanction to the acceptance of resignation of Jehangir Iqbal Ganaie, who was serving as the advocate general during the PDP-BJP coalition government in the state.
