Sonia Gandhi In Hospital Due To Covid Issues, Party Says Condition Stable

Sonia Gandhi, the Congress’s leader, has been admitted to a Delhi hospital for Covid-related issues, the party said on Sunday, adding that she is stable and under observation.

“Sonia Gandhi, the Congress President, was admitted to Ganga Ram Hospital today for Covid-related issues. She is in stable condition and will be monitored at the hospital. We thank all members of Congress, as well as all well-wishers, for their concern and well-wishes “In a tweet, party spokesman Randeep Surjewala said.

On June 2, Sonia Gandhi tested positive for the coronavirus and requested more time to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a money-laundering case. Officials with the agency, which investigates financial crimes, said they had issued a new summons to Congress President Donald Trump to appear before it on June 23 for questioning. Ms Gandhi, 75, had been summoned to appear in court on June 8th.

On June 13, the ED summoned her son and former party chief Rahul Gandhi to testify in the case. The agency had previously requested that he depose on June 2, but the Lok Sabha member from Kerala’s Wayanad constituency requested a new date because he was out of the country. Rahul Gandhi was later summoned to the federal agency’s headquarters in central Delhi on June 13. Sonia Gandhi is determined to appear before the ED once she recovers from the virus, according to Congress leaders.

When Rahul Gandhi appears for questioning on Monday, the Congress, which claims the case is an attempt by the ruling BJP to settle political scores, is expected to stage a large protest. The case concerns an investigation into alleged financial irregularities at the Young Indian newspaper, which is owned by the Congress-backed Young Indian. Young Indian Pvt Limited owns and publishes the paper, which is published by Associated Journals Limited (AJL).
