New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is currently undergoing kidney transplant at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here, hospital sources said today.
A detailed medical bulletin about the Minister’s health would be made available in the evening, sources said.
Earlier on April 5, Jaitley had tweeted about being treated for kidney related problems.
“I am being treated for kidney related problems & certain infections that I have contracted. I am therefore currently working from controlled environment at home. The future course of my treatment would be determined by the doctors treating me.”
