Arun Jaitley responding to treatment: VP's office after Naidu visits AIIMS
Former Union minister Arun Jaitley, who has been admitted to the AIIMS here after he complained of breathlessness and restlessness, is stable and responding to treatment, the Vice President's office said today after Venkaiah Naidu visited the hospital.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu visited the All India Institute of Medical Sciences to enquire about his former cabinet colleague's health.
"The doctors informed the Vice President that Shri Jaitley is responding to the treatment and his condition is stable. (PTI)
In September 2014, Arun Jaitley underwent bariatric surgery to correct the weight he had gained because of a long-standing diabetic condition.
He had undergone renal transplant on May 14 last year with Piyush Goyal filling in for him in the finance ministry at that time. Jaitley, who had stopped attending office since early April 2018, was back in the finance ministry on August 23, 2018.
In May this year, Jaitley was admitted to AIIMS for treatment.
A lawyer by profession, he had been an important part of Narendra Modi's Cabinet during his first term as prime minister. He held finance and defence portfolios, and often acted as the government's chief troubleshooter.
Jaitley did not contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election presumably because of his ill-health.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad are at AIIMS.
All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is expected to issue a medical bulletin at 10:30 pm, as per various media reports.
