Former Union finance minister Arun Jaitley is in “critical” condition and a team of multidisciplinary doctors is supervising his treatment at the intensive care unit (ICU) of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited Jaitley around 11.30 pm Friday, an hour after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath went to the hospital to enquire about his health.
Earlier on Friday, President Ram Nath Kovind paid a visit to Jaitley, accompanied by Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and Minister of State for Health Ashwini Choubey. Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar arrived at AIIMS on Saturday.
