After a gap of almost three months, Arun Jaitley is back as the Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs. The President has issued orders to this effect. "The President of India, as advised by the Prime Minister, has directed to assign the portfolios of the Minister of Finance and Minister of Corporate Affairs to Arun Jaitley," a communique from Rashtrapati Bhawan said on Thursday morning. Jaitley underwent a kidney transplant at AIIMS in May due to which his portfolio was assigned temporarily on May 14 to Railways Minister Piyush Goyal as an interim arrangement till Jaitley could return to work. Jaitley had continued in the Cabinet so far as a Minister without portfolio.
