Union minister Maneka Gandhi on Friday was diagnosed with gall bladder stones after complaining of stomach pain in her Pilibhit constituency, following which she was admitted to AIIMS here for treatment.

The women and child development minister has been admitted to a private ward, according to sources at AIIMS.

“A team of doctors has examined her. Her condition is fine and she will be under observation at AIIMS for a day or so. The treatment for gall bladder stone will continue,” the WCD Ministry said in a statement.

Gandhi had complained of stomach pain this morning and was taken to the district hospital. An ultrasound there detected stones in her gall bladder, District Magistrate Sheetal Verma said.

Thereafter, she was flown back to Delhi for medical treatment.

The 60-year-old Gandhi had held a meeting with the DM and the Superintendent of Police at Pilibhit. She then went to a guest house at Bisalpur road where she complained of uneasiness, breathing trouble and stomach pain.
