Senior Congress leader and United Progressive Alliance Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who was in Shimla with her daughter Priyanka Vadra, was rushed to New Delhi on Friday after she took ill. Gandhi complained of restlessness on Thursday night and had to be flown to Delhi today morning by an 8:30 am flight.
Thunderstorm and rains had led to a drop in temperature in the hilly region of Shimla on Thursday night and that is reportedly the primary reason for Sonia Gandhi’s health condition. The temperature in Shimla was below 8 degree Celsius last night, according to weather forecast website AccuWeather.
Sonia Gandhi was rushed to New Delhi in a special aircraft after she complained of breathing problems in Shima on Thursday night. She was first taken to Chandigarh from Shimla, and from Chandigarh to New Delhi. Her condition has been stable since last night. Refusing to be examined in Shimla, Sonia was initially taken to Chandigarh on Thursday night and from there she was taken back to New Delhi in a special aircraft.
Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital Medical Superintendent Ramesh Chand accompanied the Congress leader from Shimla to Chandigarh. He said, “Since she (Sonia Gandhi) refused to get examined in Shimla and insisted on reaching Chandigarh, she was taken to Chandigarh late night and from there she was taken to New Delhi.”
Dr Chandra said that he received a call on Thursday night from the doctor accompanying Sonia and was informed that she was not well. “We were asked to send an ambulance with a doctor to accompany her to Chandigarh. Her blood pressure was high, but her condition was stable,” he said.
