Sonia Gandhi Shifting From Delhi To Jaipur Due To Toxic Air Quality
New Delhi: Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi is shifting to Jaipur temporarily till the air quality improves in Delhi. The 76-year-old suffers from respiratory problems and doctors have advised her to temporarily move to a place where the air quality is better, as per NDTV.
The Air Quality Index for Delhi on Tuesday was 375, which is in the ‘severe’ category, while the figure for Jaipur was 72, which is in the ‘moderate’ category, according to private air quality monitoring website aqi.in.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who is addressing rallies in various states where the assembly elections will be held later this year, will visit Ms Gandhi in Jaipur on Tuesday night before heading to Chhattisgarh on Wednesday. He will go back to Jaipur and continue with his scheduled rallies in the state on Thursday.
In September, Sonia Gandhi was admitted to Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital for treatment of a viral respiratory infection. She had also been hospitalised in January due to respiratory issues.
However, this is not the first time the Congress leader is moving to a different place due to air quality in the national capital. In November 2020, she shifted to Goa temporarily reportedly after Delhi’s poor air quality aggravated her chest infection.
