Politicians curring across party lines have been wishing a speedy recovery to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who is suffering from a kidney ailment.

Senior BJP leader and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has not been attending office since Monday and even skipped taking oath after being re-elected as a Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh. He spoke about his illness through a tweet on Thursday.

”I am being treated for kidney-related problems & certain infections that I have contracted. I am therefore currently working in the controlled environment at home. The future course of my treatment would be determined by the doctors treating me,” Finance Minister tweeted.


From Congress President Rahul Gandhi to Chief Ministers of various states, well wishes poured in for Jaitley on the social media.

Doctors from AIIMS are attending to Jaitley at his residence now. A final call is yet to be taken on whether a kidney transplant is required or not, said media reports.

Depending on doctors’ advice, he may be admitted to the Cardio-Neuro Tower at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). The centre is housed in a separate building and is equipped with state-of-the-art machines.
