APPOINT PLEADERS BASED ON MERIT NOT POLITICS: HC The Mumbai High Court recently pulled up the state for appointing government pleaders based on political considerations. The order stated that the state is expected to select law officers on merit rather than on political patronage. The order came in wake of a hearing when an assistant government pleader, despite seeking two adjournments in a case, had not been able to produce a court order of 1995 which he was asked to produce. The court said public bodies had to safeguard the interests of the society and for that it must engage the most competent servants, agents, advisers, spokesmen and representatives.
