Gaurav, son of late Virendra Bhatia, former advocate general of Uttar Pradesh, had been additional advocate general since SP came to power in 2012.

He was also the official face of the ruling Samajwadi Party on most news television channels but has apparently fallen out of favour with Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
