Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said that Sonia Gandhi had gone for regular check up that happens after every six months. He added that her check up was due since her last visit abroad in September 2012 but it was delayed due to pressing engagements. "It was overdue. It has to be done after her last check up in September last year. She left this afternoon and will be back in a week or eight days," Dwivedi said.
66-year-old Sonia Gandhi, who had undergone a surgery in the US on August 5 2011, had gone for a check-up in February and 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.
