According to media reports, 70-year-old Sonia Gandhi was rushed to Delhi from Shimla and has been admitted to Ganga Ram Hospital for observation.

Sonia Gandhi’s trip to Shimla was strictly confidential and was unrelated to Himachal Pradesh Assembly. She had gone to visit her daughter, Priyanka Gandhi, at their under-construction house in Kufri, according to reports.

DS Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) of the Ganga Ram Hospital said that Sonia Gandhi is under observation and “was brought to the hospital at 5 pm” on Friday.

She is suffering from stomach ailment and has been admitted for observation, said Rana.

Rahul Gandhi shared a message on Twitter saying, “Ma was in Shimla & caught a stomach bug so we got her back.Nothing to worry, she’s much better. Thanks for the tremendous love and concern.”

According to sources, Gandhi was rushed to the hospital in an air-ambulance from Shimla, where she had gone for a vacation.

A team of doctors from the hospital was deputed to bring her back from Shimla.

Party sources said her condition was stable.

Himachal Pradesh will go to polls on 9 November and the results will be declared on 18 December.
