Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu visited the All India Institute of Medical Sciences to enquire about his former cabinet colleague’s health.

“The doctors informed the Vice President that Shri Jaitley is responding to the treatment and his condition is stable. The Vice President also met Shri Jaitley’s family members who were present,” the Vice President’s secretariat tweeted.

A hemodynamically stable patient has a stable heart pump and good blood circulation. A multidisciplinary team of doctors is supervising Jaitley’s treatment, the AIIMS said on Friday.
