Congress chief Sonia Gandhi is on the road to recovery as she walked and did some exercises today, three days after she underwent a surgery on her left shoulder, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where she is admitted, said today.

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.

“The experts treating Mrs Gandhi are happy with her steady recuperation. She also walked and did some exercises today.

“Her condition is stable and all vital parameters are normal. Dr Prateek Gupta, Orthopaedic Consultant from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Dr Sanjay Desai from Mumbai who operated on Mrs Gandhi for a shoulder injury, are happy with her progress,” according to the bulletin issued by Dr D S Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) of the hospital.

69-year-old Gandhi was shifted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Wednesday from the Army Research and Referral Hospital, where she was rushed soon after her arrival from Varanasi around midnight on Tuesday.

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 on Thursday.

Sources said Gandhi is likely to remain at the hospital for at least three more days.
