Subsequently, his detention during the Emergency period in 1975 led to his entry into politics. He pursued law and established himself as one of the most prominent legal attorneys of the country. Time and again, reaffirming his dissatisfaction with the judicial scenario, Mr. Jaitley became a vocal critique of the loopholes that faced legal profession in India.
