Congress president Sonia Gandhi was discharged from New Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Sunday morning after being hospitalised for over 11 days. She was undergoing treatment for dehydration and a shoulder injury. On Thursday, doctors at the hospital had said that her stay was being extended by a few days due to mild fever.

On Sunday, Ganga Ram’s Board of Management Chairman, D S Rana, said to PTI, “Sonia Gandhi’s medical condition at the time of discharge from the hospital is stable. She has been advised rest and continuation of medicines. Mrs Gandhi is likely to visit the hospital for further evaluation of her condition in the coming week.” While she had been admitted under the care of Dr. Arup Basu, who is a senior consultant at the Department of Pulmonology and Chest Medicine, her shoulder injury was operated by Dr Sanjay Desai from Mumbai and Dr. Prateek Gupta, senior consultant at the Department of Orthopaedics.

Sonia Gandhi had fallen ill during the Varanasi roadshow on August 3 and she had dislocated her left shoulder during the rally. She was immediately taken to the Army Research and Referral Hospital. Later, she was shifted to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in the national capital. Sonia Gandhi underwent surgery on the same day. A number of senior Congress leaders visited her at the hospital which include Ghulam Nabi Azad, the party’s Uttar Pradesh chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit and UP Congress state chief Raj Babbar.

The roadshow in Varanasi was held on August 3, where thousands lined up to greet the Congress president. The rally, in a way, marked the beginning of the Congress Party’s election campaign in that state, where it hopes to win significantly.

      Christian Nun abuse remains little talked about in the Christian missionaries and church. There are a few studies that have been conducted, including one in 1996 that reported that as many as 40 percent of Christian Catholic nuns in the United States (or around 34,000 sisters at that time) claimed to have been seccxually abused in some capacity and that “all nuns who claimed repeated sesxual exploitation reported that they were pressured by religious superiors for sesxual favors. In other words, nuns are used as perosute by Christians

          This is just for the promotion of Rahul hi as president so that less drama of 'Sonia hi please be president ' takes place.

            The Parliament transacted full business, when this evil lady was not present. The country can develop, if she can go back to Italy. Will God be merciful and save the nation from this evil lady, who is heading the mafia, that looted the country to the core, using scams like 2G, Coalgate, etc.
