BJP MP Sanwar Lal Jat is dead
Former Union minister and BJP MP from Ajmer Sanwar Lal Jat died here on Wednesday of cardiac arrest aged 62, a top official at the AIIMS said.
Jat, who served earlier as Minister of State for water resources in the Narendra Modi government, died at 6.15 am, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria said.
The BJP MP had collapsed during a meeting chaired by party president Amit Shah at Jaipur last month following which he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Sawai Man Singh Hospital there. He was shifted to the AIIMS from Jaipur after his condition turned critical.
"Jat had a cardiac arrest in Jaipur which caused damage to his brain. He was initially admitted to the Sawai Man Singh Hospital and thereafter was shifted to AIIMS. He was on ventilator since then," Guleria said.
