Union Minister Arun Jaitley returned to India on February 9. The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, who had gone to the United States for his medical treatment, said he was "delighted to be back home".
Jaitley (66), who had a kidney transplant operation and follow-up check-ups at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in 2018, left for the US on January 13 for treatment of an unstated illness.
He also missed presenting the sixth and final Budget of the Narendra Modi government's present term as he had to fly overseas for his medical treatment.
