Congress Party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said that Ms. Sonia Gandhi had left for the United States, for regular check up that happens after every 6 months. He said that her check up was due since her last visit abroad in September 2012 but it was delayed due to pressing engagements.
Accompanied by her daughter Priyanka, she left this afternoon, official sources said.
66 year old Sonia Gandhi, who had undergone a surgery in the United States for an undisclosed ailment on August 5, 2011, had flown there for a check-up in February and again on 2nd September last year.
The Congress president was admitted to AIIMS last Monday after she complained of chest pain and exhaustion in the Lok Sabha during a discussion on Food Security Bill. She was discharged from the hospital after she spent five hours undergoing various tests.
