New Delhi, Aug 27 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday visited the residence of Arun Jaitley and paid tribute to former Indian Finance Minister who passed away recently.

" PM @narendramodi visits Arun Jaitley's residence, pays tribute to Arun Jaitley and extends his condolences to the bereaved family," PIB India tweeted.

Jaitley passed away at AIIMS in New Delhi last week.

He was 66.

The 1952 born Jaitley, known for his friendly relations with the media, had undergone a renal transplant last year and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal handled the portfolio of Finance for sometime.

Due to his ill health, Jaitley could not present the last budget of the Modi government's first term in February and the task was passed on to Goyal.
