Jaitley had been unwell for the past two years. In 2018, Arun Jaitley had to undergo a kidney transplant. Earlier, in 2014, he had undergone bariatric surgery. This was done to bring down his weight that was gained as a result of his long-standing diabetic condition.
He also underwent a renal transplant on May 14 last year. Owing to his health conditions Arun Jaitley did not fight the elections this year.
May his soul rest in peace!
