Jaitley, the former Finance Minister in the first term of the Narendra Modi-led government, breathed his last at the AIIMS in New Delhi earlier today.
He was admitted to the AIIMS earlier this month after he complained of restlessness. The former Finance Minister was placed under observation at the hospital's Cardio-Neuro-Centre.
Several leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and other top BJP and Congress leaders had continued to visit Jaitley who was kept on life-support.
Jaitley will be cremated at Nigam Bodh Ghat on Sunday.
