Citing health reasons, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not include him in the new cabinet, and said he wants “reasonable” time for his treatment. “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 said in a letter to PM Modi. Jaitley, however, added that since he would have a lot of time with him during his break, he would informally support the government or the party.
