Union Minister Arun Jaitley who is back from the USA after renal surgery is all set to resume charge as Finance Minister from today. “Mr. Jaitley is ready to take over at the Finance Ministry,” the Ministry official told. “He was just waiting for the Parliament session to finish. He is likely to take charge soon.”
As Arun Jaitley left to the USA for treatment, Piyush Goyal was made an interim Finance Minister and this is the second time Piyush Goyal had taken over as Finance Minister following Mr. Jaitley’s health issues, with the first being last year while Arun Jaitley was recuperating after renal transplant surgery.
