Congress president and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital late Monday night following a mild breathing difficulty and chest infection. Hospital sources on Tuesday said she was stable and responding well to treatment.
Her children Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra were not in Delhi when she was admitted, but rushed back on Tuesday night.
Congress leaders said Sonia, 61, may be discharged from the hospital by Thursday. In a statement, Dr BK Rao, chairman of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, said, “There is nothing to worry about. We will assess her condition on Wednesday and decide on when to discharge her.”
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wished Sonia a speedy recovery.
