Sonia Gandhi admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi, suffering from upset stomach

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.

The political leader has had fallen unwell several times in the past few years.

In May, she was admitted to the same hospital for food poisoning. In February, she was reportedly admitted to SGRH after complaining of breathlessness. She had blamed weather changes for her condition and was discharged after some days.

Sonia Gandhi had stayed away from campaigning for the Congress during the Assembly elections in five states earlier in 2017.

In November 2016, she fell ill after contracting viral fever. In August 2016, she had reportedly fallen ill during a roadshow in Varanasi.
