Arun Jaitley to take Rajya Sabha oath on Sunday

New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who was re-elected to the Rajya Sabha last month, will take the oath for his new term on Sunday.

A Finance Ministry spokesperson said the oath ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. in Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu’s chambers.

Jaitley, who was on April 2 appointed the Leader of the House, could not take his oath due to his ill-health.

Suffering from kidney related problems, he was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS)’s Cardio-Neuro Tower on April 6. He was to undergo a kidney transplant but was later discharged after undergoing dialysis for three days as the donor’s organ “did not match”.
