Notably, he was given the additional charge of the Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution ministry, after the demise of Lok Janshakti Party leader Ram Vilas Paswan.
Three years back, the Union Minister had undergone an endoscopy at Breach Candy hospital for his kidney stone which was about 4mm. The procedure was performed after he walked out of a press conference, complaining of severe pain in the stomach, as per an Asian Age report.
