Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was on Friday evening admitted to the All Indian Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) where he is scheduled to undergo a kidney transplant operation tomorrow, PTI reported. The 65-year-old minister has been suffering from a kidney ailment and hasn’t returned to office since Monday. He has not even taken oath of office after being re-elected to the Rajya Sabha.
The minister, who cancelled his scheduled visit to London for the 10th India-UK Economic and Financial Dialogue next week, had confirmed his illness in a tweet yesterday. “I am being treated for kidney-related problems & certain infections that I have contracted,” he had tweeted.
Jaitley, however, had not elaborated on the ailment, but said he was “currently working from controlled environment at home. The future course of my treatment would be determined by the doctors treating me.” He is likely to be operated by nephrologist Dr Sandeep Guleria from Apollo hospital, also brother of AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria, who is a family friend of Jaitley.
