After being ill during a roadshow in Varanasi, Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s stay at a private hospital has been extended for a few days. She was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram hospital on August 3 after she fell ill with fever, dehydration and a shoulder injury during a Varanasi roadshow.
Doctors at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said that Sonia Gandhi still has mild fever which delayed her discharge. The Chairman of Board of Management of the hospital, Dr. DS Rana said that a team of doctors examined Mrs. Gandhi and she has been advised to extend her stay at the hospital due to fever and infection.
The hospital had earlier informed that the Congress President is making steady progress and her condition is stable. She had dislocated her left shoulder when she fainted in the rally.
She had undergone a shoulder surgery on August 3. She had to reduce her roadshow in Varanasi after she was taken ill. She was shifted out of the ICU, a few days back. Sheila Dikshit, Raj Babbar and other Congress leaders visited her at the hospital. According to sources, the operation lasted for nearly two hours.
