NEW DELHI: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who was re-elected to the Rajya Sabha last month, on Sunday took oath for his new term.

Jaitley took oath in Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu's chamber in Parliament.

Beside Jaitley, BJP's Ananth Kumar, Leader of Opposition in the Upper House Ghulam Nabi Azad and several other senior leaders were present.

Jaitley, who was on April 2 appointed the Leader of the House, could not take his oath due to his ill-health. He was elected to the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh.

Suffering from kidney related problems, he was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) 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".
