Additional solicitor general Harin Raval should have “talked it out” with attorney general GE Vahanvati instead of writing a letter alleging he has been made a scapegoat in the coal blocks allocations issue, said external affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Tuesday.


“If I would be advising the deputy (Raval), I would have said if you have differences of opinion, perception or you believe you haven’t got support you deserved, then you are two professionals working together. Talk it out,” Khurshid told NDTV news channel.

“I am not quite sure it was the best thing to do, not only to write a letter but also put it out in the media. I think they are two top professionals and it really doesn’t behove top professionals to be settling what could be egos or could be genuine differences of opinion,” said Khurshid, a former law minister.

“Great minds can disagree,” he said.
