Jaitley was admitted to the hospital on Saturday. The minister, who was suffering from a kidney ailment, has been undergoing dialysis for the last one month. The dialysis, doctors said, was necessitated to ensure that the build-up of wastes and toxins within the body was effectively removed.
Jaitley had confirmed his illness in a tweet on Apr 6 and said, “I am being treated for kidney-related problems & certain infections that I have contracted.”
