M Veerappa Moily has said that a ‘campaign by vested interests’ robbed him of his former role as law minister. Now minister of corporate affairs, he tells India Business Law Journal that he will be a ‘mother to the corporate world’

In a cabinet reshuffle on 12 July, India’s law minister, M Veerappa Moily, was moved to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Sitting in his new office on the fourth floor of Shastri Bhawan, a building that houses several ministries in central Delhi, the soft-spoken lawyer and Congress politician from Karnataka gave his second exclusive interview to India Business Law Journal.

India Business Law Journal (IBLJ): When you were moved from the Law Ministry to the Corporate Affairs Ministry in July, you expressed your displeasure at the move and blamed a campaign by vested-interest groups who opposed certain reforms you were pursuing.

Moily: No. No. I am quite happy now. Past is past. Now I don’t want to reopen that chapter. I forgot it.
