Sonia Gandhi may leave for United States for medical check-up today

New Delhi: Days after Sonia Gandhi took ill in Parliament and had to be rushed to AIIMS for treatment, the Congress president is expected to fly to the United States for a medical check-up on Monday evening.

A senior party leader was quoted yesterday saying that Sonia’s going to the US for medical check-up was due. However, he declined to give any details as to when she would be flying out.

The UPA chairperson had reportedly undergone a surgery in the US in August, 2011. But the nature of her ailment was not disclosed. Later, she had again visited America in September last year for a check-up and then in February earlier this year.

Sonia had to be admitted to hospital on August 26 after she took ill in the Lok Sabha. She left the Parliament, accompanied by her son Rahul Gandhi and union minister Kumari Selja, even as voting was about to begin on her pet project, the Food Security Bill. She was discharged later that night after doctors attending to her said that she could go home.

UPA’s ambitious food bill, aimed at proving cheap grain to about one third of India’s population, was passed by the lower House.
