Sonia Gandhi Shifts Out Of Delhi; Know Why
New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi will leave Delhi on Friday on the advice of her doctors. She was advised her to shift out of the national capital in view of the heavy pollution and poor air quality that has aggravated her chest infection, people aware of the matter said, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.
The report quoted a senior Congress functionary as saying that doctors had advised her to shift to a warmer place. “Two places have been identified—the outskirts of Chennai and Goa—for the purpose,” he said.
The 73-year-old Congress leader will be accompanied by former Congress president Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. She had made a brief appearance at the Indira Gandhi Memorial on Thursday to pay tribute to the late Prime Minister on her 103rd birth anniversary, the report added.
“Mrs Gandhi has chronic chest infection for over a month now and it is not improving because of hazardous air quality in Delhi. The heavy pollution has aggravated her asthma and her chest condition. Accordingly, doctors advised her to shift out of Delhi till air quality improves,” said the functionary on the condition of anonymity, HT reported.
