Congress president Sonia Gandhi was admitted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi on Sunday due to post Covid issues. However, she is in stable condition, party sources said.
"Congress President, Smt. Sonia Gandhi was admitted to Ganga Ram Hospital today owing to Covid related issues. She is stable and will be kept at the hospital for observation," Congress general secretary Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
The party spokesperson expressed gratitude to all well wishers for their concern.
"We thank all the Congress men and women as also all well wishers for their concern and good wishes," he added.
Sonia Gandhi was to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on June 8. However, she tested positive for COVID-19 on June 2 and was recovering from the infection. She was detected with post Covid issues when she visited the hospital for routine check-up, party sources said.
In view of her health condition, the party president had sought more time from the probe agency. Following it, she has been issued a fresh summons to appear before the ED on June 23 in a money-laundering case in connection with the National Herald-AJL case.
