Former Union minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley, who was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on Friday with complaints of breathlessness and uneasiness, is responding to treatment and his condition is stable.  Jaitley is currently in the Cardiothoracic and Neurosciences Centre of the premier medical institute.

According to a release by media and protocol division of AIIMS, the former minister is under the supervision of a team comprising multidisciplinary doctors. “At present he is haemodynamically stable”.

Early on Saturday morning, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu visited AIIMS to know about Jaitley’s health condition. Naidu enquired about Jaitley's health with the team of doctors attending to the former Union minister, and also met members of his family. 

On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan were among the many leaders who visited Jaitley at the hospital.

In May this year, shortly after the BJP came back to power with a thumping majority, the 66-year-old had opted out of the new cabinet citing his health condition.

 "I am writing to you to formally request you that I should be allowed a reasonable time for myself, my treatment and my health and, therefore, not be a part of any responsibility, for the present, in the new government", he had said in his letter to the prime minister ahead of the formation of the new Union Cabinet.
