So this story about Advocate General of Chhattisgarh is one such example which actually reflects the difference between @INCIndia and @BJP4India

And I have had the opportunity of closely observing similar stuff from Supreme Court since I started reporting from SC in 2013.
In 2013, with the UPA 2 caught in a whirlwind of scams, a very unusual thing happened.

An ASG resigned from his post but not before he shot off a letter to then Attorney General accusing the AG of making the ASG a scapegoat in the coal scam case. barandbench.com/coalgate-scam-…
This was unnecessary and handled very clumsily.

Aside from the lack of synergy between UPA law officers, it also reflected another aspect - a lack of commitment to an ideology or a cause that made them law officers of a govt of a particular political party in the first place
I had written about the UPA law officers facing the music in the Supreme Court. Interestingly, Gopal Subramanium and Rohinton Nariman J. (earlier Sr. Adv) had also resigned as Solicitor General over differences with the UPA Govt.

Gopal subramanium even went on record to state:

".. office of Solicitor General must be viewed as an office completely at arms length from the Government….When I realized that this perception itself was getting diluted, I became concerned.. and I decided to resign.."
Resigning over differences with the govt is one thing but the law officers going public with the same is another - something that @INCIndia should have introspected in 2013.
Now compare and contrast this with the law officers of @BJP4India. One Attorney General, one Solicitor General and at least three prominent ASGs have resigned.

But why? Did it even make it to mainstream news, I doubt.
Does it mean everything hunky dory between the law officers of @BJP4India in Supreme Court? I, for a fact, know that it is not.

But has it ever been a subject matter of discussion anywhere? No.
Of course, don't give the usual answer of media is hard on Congress party highlights issues of @INCIndia etc.

No point in blaming media, if @INCIndia cannot get its house in order

This Chhattisgarh AG incident and the earlier Ruchi Kohli incident are all cases in point
The lack of a well-oiled mechanism and a commitment to the cause of many who actually represent the party at the highest level reflects in courts too and very evidently.
And that sets @BJP4India of today apart from @INCIndia of today.
