Arun Jaitley continues to be critical

Former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has been put on extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), which is used for patients whose lungs and heart are incapable of operating on their own. Several Union Ministers including Rajnath Singh, Smriti Irani and Jitendra Singh, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat as well as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal visited AIIMS on Sunday to enquire about the health of former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who is in a critical condition on life support systems.

He was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on August 9 after he complained of breathlessness and restlessness. Others who visited the hospital on Sunday included Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, Himachal Pradesh Governor Kalraj Mishra, RSS Joint General Secretary Krishna Gopal and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh.
