Two months after she fell ill, Congress President Sonia Gandhi Wednesday had her first public engagement when she met visiting Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe in New Delhi.
Sixty nine-year-old Gandhi had suddenly taken ill on August 2 during her roadshow in Varanasi. She was rushed to Delhi and was admitted to the Army Research and Referral Hospital first before being shifted to Sri Gangaram Hospital. She was also treated for a shoulder injury that she had sustained.
The Congress party president met Wickramasinghe along with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and senior party leader Anand Sharma.
The Sri Lankan prime minister arrived in the national capital Tuesday on a three-day visit, and is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi later in the day. He will also call on President Pranab Mukherjee.
