Sonia Gandhi admitted

Congress president Sonia Gandhi was admitted to a hospital here after she complained of difficulty in breathing and her condition was described as “quite stable”.

Gandhi was taken to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital here around one a.m. after she complained of breathing difficulty.

The 61-year-old leader was diagnosed with having chest infection, according to a health bulletin issued by the hospital.

The condition of Gandhi, who has been kept in a special room at the hospital, is now stable and she is expected to be discharged on Wednesday, Congress sources said.

Gandhi was having “cough and mild breathing difficulty” when she was admitted, but by evening her condition was quite stable, a hospital spokesman said.

Her children — Rahul and Priyanka — who were away in Maldives to celebrate New Year, rushed back to the capital and went to the hospital in the evening, party sources said.

Gandhi had food that was prepared at her residence.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spoke to Gandhi and extended new year greetings to her besides wishing her speedy recovery.

Singh spoke to her over phone and enquired about her health, sources said.

There was tight security at the hospital and no visitors were allowed to meet Gandhi.

There was a steady stream of visitors, most of them Congress leaders, to the hospital.

Among the visitors were senior Congress leaders Motilal Vora, Digvijay Singh, Mohsina Kidwai and Kamalnath

Speak India says

Congress is going the BJP way. But why? Cos the party members of congress carried out a havan in the hospital premises for her to recuperate ASAP. Now is that a political move to  attract the Hindu vote bank (remember Gujarat loss)?

Lets hope she gets well soon.
