Arun Jaitley

"I am writing to you to formally request you that I should be allowed a reasonable time for myself, my treatment and my health and, therefore, not be a part of any responsibility, for the present, in the new government," Jaitley wrote in a letter to PM.

There seems to be no truth in fake rumours doing rounds on social media. Arun Jaitley is in the pink of health and is hale and hearty after being discharged from AIIMS. 

Jaitley said the Congress was claiming surgical strikes now only to save political face in light of Masood Azhar's listing as a global terrorist by the UN

"The Congress is contesting the 2019 election on the 1971 agenda. It is not in tune with the times," Finance Minister Jaitley said in a blog titled -- 'Has the Congress thrown its Hands up?'

He wrote, such complaints, when they are made in the ordinary course of any administrative functioning, are referred to the appropriate Committee.

"A relevant question with this changing socio-economic profile of India is - Are dynasties an asset for a party or are they a liability? Unquestionably, the present generation of dynast has become a liability rather than an asset for the Congress party," said Jaitley.

The Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar also alleged that the ticket distribution was handled by Lalu, despite him behind the bars.

Vadra wrote on Facebook: "One must maintain respect, a decorum in every situation, it shows character and that's what I was taught by my parents and in sport. Healthy competition will only bring out the best in a person that people will judge."

Arun Jaitley said, "Some of the ideas [in the Congress manifesto] are positively dangerous. Even though there was a drafting committee, it appears some points have been drafted by Congress president's friends in the 'Tukde Tukde gang' where the manifesto deals with Jammu and Kashmir and the national security."
