Gandhi, 69, who underwent a shoulder surgery in the same hospital last year, had been admitted on 7 May.

"The health condition of Sonia Gandhi who was admitted on Sunday for food poisoning is stable. She is progressing well and may be discharged in a day or two," said Dr DS Rana, Chairman, Board of Management, Ganga Ram.

The Raebareli MP has been unwell for some time.

She was admitted to the hospital on 3 August last year after she suffered fever, dehydration and had a shoulder injury during a road show in Varanasi. She underwent surgery on her left shoulder. Gandhi also suffered viral fever on 29 November and was hospitalised for two days.
