Congress president Sonia Gandhi was rushed to Delhi's Ganga Ram hospital for having stomach upset, media reports said on Friday.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi was rushed to Delhi's Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SGRH) after she complained of a stomach upset on Friday.
Sonia Gandhi was brought back to Delhi from Shimla, where she was on a vacation, in an air ambulance. A team of doctors from the hospital was deputed to bring
her back from Shimla.
"(Sonia Gandhi) was brought to the hospital on Friday around 5 pm. She was found to be suffering from an upset stomach," said DS Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) SGRH.
The 70-year-old Congress president is currently under observation. Party sources said her condition was stable.
The Congress president's son and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi later tweeted that her condition wasn't something to worry about.
Ma was in Shimla & caught a stomach bug so we got her back. Nothing to worry, she's much better. Thanks for the tremendous love and concern.
