COURSTEY MIRROR JULY 20

Money matters
A MONTH after the Congress asked Arun Jaitley on his social media who the finance minister of India was, Jaitley is ready with an answer. Sources tell your diarist that Jaitley, who held the finance portfolio until he went for a kidney transplant on May 14, will return to office on August 14. On his social media page, Jaitley had criticised the Congress saying it only manufactured slogans while prime minister Narendra Modi provided resources. The Congress had retaliated and questioned his role. Congress’ communications head Randeep Surjewala asked Jaitley to also write a post on the state of India’s economy, since, he said, ministers without a portfolio speak on agriculture, the agriculture minister speaks on defence, the defence minister speaks on social justice and the social justice minister speaks on foreign policy. In Jaitley’s absence, railways minister Piyush Goyal has been given additional charge of the ministry. During Goyal’s charge, the opposition has had a field day questioning the government about who really holds the finance portfolio, especially since both Jaitley (via video conferencing) and Goyal commemorated the first anniversary of the GST as well as addressed the State Bank of India’s annual conclave.
