Advocate Mohit D Ram was a panel counsel for the EC in the Supreme Court since 2013.

 

"I have found that my values are not in consonance with the current functioning of the EC; and hence I withdraw myself from the responsibilities of its panel counsel before the Supreme Court.

"I undertake to ensure smooth transition of files, NOC and 'vakalatnamas' in all pending matters with my office," he said in the resignation letter.
