As rightly explained by Simran, Piyush Goyal is only a interim Finance Minister as Arun Jaitley’s has undergone tests for soft tissue cancer to US. This is not the first time Goyal has been assigned the finance ministry. Earlier, Jaitley underwent a kidney transplant in May 2018 Goyal had was interim Finance Minister.

Yes, it has been reported that Piyush Goyal will be interim Finance Minister, due to Arun Jaitley’s ill health.

As the government hasn’t mentioned who will be presenting the Union Budget on February 1, 2019, it would be foolish to make guesses right now. However, it is usually the Finance Minister who presents the Budget presentation, so chances are high that Piyush Goyal will present the Union Budget.
