West Bengal's Advocate General Anindya Mitra resigned on Friday. He gave no official reason for the sudden move.
The state government accepted the resignation and replaced Mitra with another barrister Bimal Chatterjee, who has long been associated with the ruling TMC.
Legal circles described the new Advocate General as a "political appointee" on whom the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee could rely on, given his sound track record.
Law Minister Chandrima Bhattacharjee said Mitra had tendered his resignation without giving any reason and the government had accepted it.
