Union Minister Arun Jaitley Saturday returned from the United States, where he was undergoing medical treatment. “Delighted to be back home,” Jaitley tweeted. Jaitley, who was the Finance Minister before a medical procedure led to the charge being temporarily taken away from him, missed presenting the sixth and final Budget of the Narendra Modi government before the general elections. In his absence, the charge of the ministry was given to Railways Minister Piyush Goyal. In a tweet, Goyal said: “Delighted to welcome back respected Shri @arunjaitley ji. Very grateful to him for his support, guidance and leadership.”
Jaitley has been active on social media tweeting and writing Facebook posts and had also met reporters through a video call from New York and fielded questions on the Budget. He also gave interviews on the subject.
