New Delhi: With reports emanating that former BJP leader Ram Jethmalani could take up some critical cases against the relative of a top BJP leader, speculations are rife that the party might try to win over the son to appease the father.
Reports suggest that Mr Jethmalani may consider taking up the case against the relative of the top BJP leader.

Additional solicitor-general Maninder Singh perceived to be close to Mr Jaitley and ASG Tushar Mehta, who hails from Gujarat and is close to the BJP leadership, are the other contenders for the post. He has appeared in several important cases before the Bombay High Court and SC, where he appeared for Amit Shah in the Sohrabuddin fake encounter and Tulsiram Prajapati killing cases....
