Sonia Gandhi, who has not attended most of the current session of parliament, has been hospitalised in Delhi where she is reportedly being treated for a viral fever. SGRH management board chairman Dr DS Rana later said that routine tests were being conducted on her, and that she was already feeling better.
Mrs Gandhi continues to be in and from hospitals recently and her well-being continues to be subject of much conjecture in the press. The leader of opposition was hospitalized for a viral fever on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016, a party official said. "She is likely to be discharged in a day or two".
While the Congress chief's daughter Priyanka was with her throughout, son Rahul visited her on Tuesday. "The Congress President will resume her Parliament duty soon".
She was admitted to the hospital with fever, dehydration and a shoulder injury. "There is no cause for worry", he added.
The 69-year-old leader was earlier admitted to the hospital on 3 August after being taken ill during a roadshow in Varanasi. One of the top Indian politicians who are unwell but continue to work, Sonia had had to go to NY in 2011 for treatment - purportedly a surgery that greatly improved her health.
