NDTV has copy of the Solicitor General's opinion to the government.
In February this year, the Kejriwal government in Delhi filed a first information report or FIR against Union Petroleum Minister Veerappa Moily, former Petroleum Minister Murali Deora, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani and former Director-General of Hydrocarbons VK Sibal alleging their involvement in corruption on the issue of hiking gas prices.
In his opinion, Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran says the Delhi government acted in haste in filing the FIR:
Mohan Parasaran has advised that either the central government or others who figure in the FIR can approach the Delhi High Court or the Supreme Court to have it quashed. Mr Parasaran says gas pricing falls under the Union government and the states have no jurisdiction in the matter.
