Upset with the results, BJP insiders held State Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath responsible for the debacle, alleging that he had empanelled “turncoats” as public prosecutors (PP) and assistant public prosecutors, depriving the “knowledgeable, competent and anti-left” lawyers across the state.

“This was a protest voting against the Government’s attitude towards the genuine aspirants. There was cross-voting against the BJP panel because the selection was done without considering the loyalty to the party,” observed a senior advocate, adding the present Government has aped the preceding Left Front regime by bringing an advocate general from outside. Moreover, the state government has been losing most cases due to incompetent PPs and APPs, he said.
