New Delhi: As former finance minister Arun Jaitley continues to be on life support, several politicians, including veteran BJP leader LK Advani and Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, on Monday (August 19) visited the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to enquire about his health.
