Congress president Sonia Gandhi hospitalised; She’s stable, say doctors


India’s Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi was admitted to Ganga Ram hospital on Thursday evening for what the doctors called “routine tests and investigations”.

“Congress President, Mrs Sonia Gandhi has been admitted on Thursday evening at 7:00 pm to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. She has been admitted for routine tests and investigations. Her condition is currently stable,” said Dr DS Rana, Chairman (Board of Management), Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
The Congress president was admitted to the same hospital in February after she complained of stomach ache.

Earlier in the day, Sonia Gandhi held a meeting with party’s Rajya Sabha members and discussed the current political situation with them.

The meeting was organised through video conference in which its top leaders, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, participated.
