Arun Jaitley, the former Finance Minister of India and senior BJP leader passed away at 66 today. Arun Jaitley breathed his last in New Delhi’s AIIMS.
Arun Jaitley was rushed to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on August 9 after he complained of weakness and difficulty in breathing. A senior AIIMS doctor had then told the media that Arun Jaitley was admitted to the cardiology department at 10 a.m. “for a medical check-up” and was being monitored by a team comprising an endocrinologist, a nephrologist and a cardiologist
Last Tuesday reports read that Jaitley’s health was critical but haemodynamically stable. Notably, being hemodynamically stable is indicative of stable heart pump and good blood circulation.
PM Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and other top BJP leaders had paid Jaitley a visit in the hospital the same day he was admitted to inquire about his condition.
He also underwent a renal transplant on May 14 last year. Owing to his health conditions Arun Jaitley did not fight the elections this year.
