Arun Jaitley in critical condition

Former Finance Minister and veteran BJP leader Arun Jaitley, currently admitted in the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS)-Delhi, is reportedly in a critical condition. He was admitted to the hospital on August 9. The 66-year-old leader, who held important portfolios during the first tenure of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government, has not been keeping well for some time.

He did not even contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election citing health reasons. In February, Piyush Goyal had to present the interim budget as Jaitley was in the US for treatment.
