Lawyer and Aam Aadmi Party leader Prashant Bhushan has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court challenging the appointment of Shashi Kant Sharma as the new Comptroller Auditor General (CAG).

The Aam Aadmi Party had said that the appointment of the new CAG was unconstitutional since Sharma was joint secretary, additional secretary, director general (acquisition) and defence secretary in the defence ministry since 2003.

The Aam Aadmi Party had opposed his appointment saying that the government had no set method for appointments to the post of the CAG and there was no committee that had been instituted for the purpose.
