Union Minister Arun Jaitley is back home after a three-week stay at Delhi's AIIMS hospital for a kidney transplant.

Mr Jaitley, 65, was admitted to the hospital on May 12, and the surgery took place two days later. After the surgery, he spent some time in an isolation ward to avoid infection.

During his hospital stay, the senior minister wrote a Facebook post on four years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government.When Mr Jaitley was in hospital, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal was given the additional charge of the finance ministry.

Mr Jaitley shared details of his condition through a tweet on April 6 and went through dialysis for about a month. He had a kidney transplant after that.
