Congress president Sonia Gandhi hospitalised again

Congress chief Sonia Gandhi has been admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital again for a routine check-up. She was discharged four days ago following a treatment for a shoulder injury. She visited the hospital on Wednesday for removal of post-surgery stitches.

 

Sources, however, said that she was admitted again last evening. “At the time of discharge, doctors said she may have to come again for further evaluation,” a hospital source said. “She is likely to stay at the hospital for another couple of days,” the source added.

 

The 69-year-old leader was admitted to the hospital on August 3 after a roadshow in Varanasi. She was discharged on August 14 and doctors had then said she had recovered from her illness and injury to the left shoulder.

 

Gandhi was under the care of Arup Basu, senior consultant, Department of Pulmonology and Chest Medicine. She was operated upon for a shoulder injury by Prateek Gupta, senior consultant and his team from Department of Orthopaedics and Sanjay Desai from Mumbai.

 

The Congress chief was shifted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital from the Army Research and Referral Hospital, where she was rushed soon after she came back from Varanasi on August 2.
