According to Congress sources, Gandhi has gone abroad for routine a check-up as advised by her doctors.

"She will be back after 3-4 days," said a party source.

In August last year, the Congress chief was taken ill during a road show in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's constituency.

Gandhi had on 27 February visited the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital (SRGH) here for a routine medical check-up.

Earlier, Gandhi was twice admitted to the SRGH for her ill-health, during which she underwent a minor shoulder surgery.

Sonia Gandhi has not addressed any election campaign in Uttar Pradesh and instead issued an appeal to voters through a statement and video.
