In a wake to win the battle of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2017, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who had to pull off her road show in Modi’s constituency Varanasi on Tuesday after she fell ill, returned to Delhi late night and was taken to Army Research And Referral Hospital for a check-up, party leaders said.
Congress General Secretary and UP in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad told media at the airport that she was suffering from dehydration which caused fever and Gandhi is stable now.
On the other hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Congress’s UP chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit enquired about Sonia Gandhi’s health and offered to help out by sending a doctor for a health check of Gandhi and a plane for transportation back to Delhi.
Gandhi, who reached Varanasi earlier on Tuesday to a rousing welcome, took ill midway through her road show and had to abort it.
She was taken to a lodge where doctors attended on her and advised her rest. Ghanshyam Srivastava, a doctor who attended on her, said she was feeling dehydrated and running high blood pressure (88-172) as well as fever.
