Foreigners who attended Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz to be tried for violating visa rule

Sirf News has accessed from the police the records of many Tablighi Jamaat associates who have returned to or been to the Northeast and non-Muslims who passed through the area and returned to the states of the region

Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who has been suffering from a kidney ailment for quite some time now, might undergo a kidney surgery soon.

His ailing health didn’t allow him to take the oath of office at the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday as the doctors have advised him not to go out in order to avoid the risk of catching an infection.

Jaitley, 65, is undergoing diagnostic tests and doctors have so far indicated that it was a kidney-related ailment. The minister, however, has not yet been hospitalised but has been advised to avoid going out in public for fear of infection.

The finance minister has not been attending office since Monday and even skipped taking oath after being re-elected as Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh. 53 out of the 58 newly-elected or re-elected members took the oath of office during the last two days.

Earlier, the Union minister, who also suffers from acute diabetes, had undergone bariatric surgery for weight reduction soon after the BJP government came to power at the Centre in 2014. He underwent the surgery to treat weight gain that he suffered because of a long-standing diabetic condition.

That surgery was first performed at Max Hospital, but he then had to be shifted to AIIMS because of complications.

Sources said doctors from AIIMS are attending to Jaitley at his residence now. A final call is yet to be taken on whether a kidney transplant is required or not.

The minister, who suffers from chronic diabetes, had heart surgery several years ago. He is a key member of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet and presented his fifth and the present NDA government’s final full budget on 1 February.
