Sonia Gandhi Discharged From HospitalSonia Gandhi Discharged From Hospital

The leader of India’s main opposition Congress Party, Sonia Gandhi, has been discharged from hospital where she had surgery to repair a shoulder injury, doctors say. Her condition is stable and she has been advised to rest, doctors at Delhi’s Ganga Ram Hospital said. Gandhi, 69, is the widow of former prime minister, Rajiv Gandhi. She is the head of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, which has mostly governed India since independence in 1947, BBC reported. Gandhi was admitted earlier this month after suffering from dehydration, fever and sustaining an injury during a campaign event in the city of Varanasi. She underwent surgery to repair the shoulder injury and was discharged from hospital on Sunday. Her party lost the 2014 general elections to Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party. In 2011 Gandhi went to the US to receive surgery for an undisclosed medical condition. In 2013, she was taken to a hospital for a few hours after she fell ill in parliament. And in 2014, she was admitted to a Delhi hospital for treatment of an infection.
