In a fresh resolution, the Supreme Court Collegium led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi has now recommended to the government to appoint Justice AA Kureshi as the chief justice of Tripura High Court.
The Collegium modified its May 10 recommendation to appoint Justice Kureshi as the Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Hindu reported.
The development comes following the government sent it to two consecutive letters to reconsider the proposal.
Justice Kureshi is the senior most judge from the Gujarat High Court.
The Collegium resolution does not reveal any reason for the sudden change of mind.
It blankly says the modification in its earlier recommendation on Justice Kureshi’s appointment to Madhya Pradesh is based on two communications, dated August 23 and August 27, from the government.
