Finance Minister Arun Jaitley was discharged from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Thursday. He had been admitted in AIIMS for at least one day. Mr Jaitley, 66, has not been attending office for about three weeks now and was admitted to AIIMS for undergoing tests and treatment for an undisclosed illness, sources said. 

Unconfirmed sources say, Jaitley is seriously unwell and has been asked to get medical help in London. Considering the seriousness of the situation, his son's marriage has been advanced to June 4.

Jaitley has been friend and comrade to Prime Minister Narendra Modi since early days. One of the most prolific voices in the Modi government and a key strategist, Mr Jaitley did not contest the current Lok Sabha elections presumably because of ill health.

Meanwhile Jailey himself has congratulated the Prime Minister on his win and has thanked the people of India for giving BJP their second consecutive mandate.
