Is Attorney General Part of Union Executive?
Union Executive consists of the President, the Vice-President, the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers and the Attorney General. Attorney General is a part of Union Executive because the provisions regarding AG have been duly enshrined in Part-V (The Union) Chapter-1 – The Executive. By this definition, provisions of Comptroller and Auditor General are made in same Part V but there is a a separate chapter for CAG just to imply that CAG is not part of Union Executive.
Further, though AG has no executive authority; but he is also not a neutral person. He is an officer with right to be heard in every court, take part in proceedings of parliament and duty to represent Union of India in Supreme / Other courts.
