New Delhi [India], Feb 15 (ANI): Union Minister Arun Jaitley, who had undergone treatment in the United States for around a month, will resume charge as the Finance Minister on Friday, sources said.
In view of Jaitley’s indisposition, his portfolios of Finance and Corporate Affairs were temporarily assigned to Railway Minister Piyush Goyal in addition to his existing portfolios.
The Union Minister returned to India on February 9 after being treated in New York.  
Jaitley, who was designated as 'Minister Without Portfolio', underwent renal transplant last year at the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here.  
Although Jaitley was away from India, he remained active on Twitter and was regular with his blog posts. (ANI)
