At the AICC briefing, Congress’s communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala also extended best wishes and a speedy recovery to Jaitley on behalf of the party and its president. Jaitley underwent a successful kidney transplant surgery at the AIIMS this morning.
“The surgery has been successful. Both the recipient and the donor are stable and recovering well,” a statement from Aarti Vij, the head of the media and protocol division of the AIIMS, said.
Jaitley has been unwell for a while and was undergoing treatment at the AIIMS.
Recently, while taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi had tweeted a “fake letter” from the PM, saying, “Dear FM, As you are indisposed and Finance Secretary is on vacation with his Guru on a quest for inner peace, I have decided to shut the Finance Ministry till further notice. The PMO will take all financial policy decisions as before. Prime Minister (sic).”
