Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday took additional charge of the defence ministry on Tuesday, in light of Manohar Parrikar's resignation to take charge of Goa as its chief minister, soon after the Assembly elections there.
The president, as advised by the prime minister, had directed that Arun Jaitley be assigned the charge of the defence ministry in addition to his existing portfolios, a statement from the President's Office had said.
Jaitley had previously also held charge of the defence ministry, briefly, after the inception of the Narendra Modi government – from 26 May till 9 November, 2014, following which the portfolio was handed to Parrikar.
If Home Minister Rajnath Singh is chosen as the next chief minister for Uttar Pradesh, that portfolio will also be vacant.
