Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and other top BJP leaders visited the hospital to inquire about his condition.

“Jaitley was admitted to the cardiology department of AIIMS at 10 a.m. for a medical check-up. He is being monitored by a team of endocrinologist, nephrologist and cardiologist,” a senior doctor at AIIMS said.

Arun Jaitley has been unwell for a large part of the last two years. Last year, Arun Jaitley took a three-month sabbatical to undergo a kidney transplant, following which he was put under isolation. Earlier, in 2014, Arun Jaitley underwent bariatric surgery to correct the weight he had gained because of a long-standing diabetic condition.
