Congress president Sonia Gandhi was admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital with an upset stomach on Friday evening.

“Mrs Sonia Gandhi was brought to the hospital at 5 pm. She was suffering from an upset stomach,” said Dr DS Rana, chairman (board of management) of the hospital.

The 71-year-old political leader will be kept under observation overnight, he added.

This is the third time Gandhi has been hospitalised this year. In May, she came down with food poisoning and spent nearly a week in the hospital. Earlier, in January, she was hospitalised with fever and chest congestion.

Gandhi, who also suffers from chronic asthma, has been under the care of Ganga Ram Hospital consultant pulmonologist Dr Arup Basu.

The Congress president has been shuttling in and out of the hospital ever since she collapsed due to massive electrolyte imbalance at a rally in Varanasi , fracturing her left shoulder, last August.

Her daughter, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, was also admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in August this year. She had come down with dengue.
