Sonia Gandhi who is admitted at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is making steady progress, the hospital said on Monday. Her condition is “stable” and all vital parameters are normal, the hospital said in its latest medical bulletin on the veteran leader’s health status. Sonia dislocated her left shoulder when she fainted last week while launching the party’s campaign for next year’s Uttar Pradesh state election in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency. Gandhi suffered acute dehydration while travelling in an open vehicle for four hours through large crowds.
“She had dislocated her shoulder after a fall and is now under observation for 48 hours,” said a senior party official. Gandhi was shifted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Wednesday from the Army Research and Referral Hospital. She had to cut short her roadshow in Varanasi after she was taken ill. She had fractured her left shoulder during the roadshow. The Congress president was shifted out of the ICU recently. A number of senior Congress leaders visited her at the hospital which include Sheila Dikshit and Raj Babbar. Sources said the operation on her shoulder on Wednesday night lasted for nearly two hours. They said she is likely to remain at the hospital for at least five days and will need physiotherapy.
