Justice Sanjay Mishra appointed UP Lokayukta

New Delhi, Jan 28 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday appointed Justice Sanjay Mishra, a former judge of the Allahabnad High Court, as the Lokayukta of Uttar Pradesh.

The apex court bench comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Prafulla C. Pant appointed Mishra as the Lokayukta, while recalling their December 16, 2015 order appointing Justice Virendra Singh for the post.

Recalling the sequence of events leading to the appointment of Singh as the Lokayukta on December 16, 2015, the court regretted that constitutional authorities — the chief minister, the Leader of Opposition (LoP) and the Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court — despite prolonged meetings could not decide on a simple issue of the appointment of Lokayukta.
