Arun Jaitley too advised Dow on Bhopal
The fresh revelation comes within a week after CNN-IBN exposed how Abhishek Singhvi had counselled the company in 2006.

New Delhi: After Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley has come under the scanner as documents accessed by CNN-IBN show that Jaitley too appeared as counsel for Dow Chemicals - the company that took over Union Carbide.

While defending the company, Jaitley had even argued said that since it was a different company, Dow Chemicals did not have to inherit the liabilities of Union Carbide after acquiring it.

The fresh revelation comes within a week after CNN-IBN exposed how Abhishek Singhvi acted as a counsel for the company in 2006.

Both Singhvi and Jaitley appeared as counsels in 2006.

While Singhvi's letterhead was an official one, as spokesperson of the Congress party, Jaitley's letterhead mentions him only as a senior advocate.

Also, Singhvi was an MP with the UPA government while Jaitley was not the Leader of the Opposition in 2006.

Jaitley has given up practice since he took over as the Leader of the Opposition.
