New Delhi: After a gap of about four years, P Chidambaram today returned as head of the Finance Ministry amid urgency to give a boost to the sagging economy.

Known for taking tough and bold decisions, Chidambaram, in a minor cabinet reshuffle yesterday, was moved from Home to Finance Ministry.

Earlier in the day, Chidambaram went to the Home Ministry for a short while and thereafter took charge of the new portfolio.
