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

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

Jaitley who is suffering from kidney related problems, 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”.
