Union Minister Maneka Gandhi was admitted to the emergency ward of a local hospital in Pilibhit, Uttar Pradesh where an ultrasound scan confirmed stones in her gall bladder. She is reportedly being airlifted to Delhi. She was holding a meeting in Pilibhit, her parliamentary constituency, when she complained of a stomach-ache. A surgery to remove the stones will be performed in Delhi.
Presently, Gandhi is admitted in AIIMS, Delhi and a team of doctors has examined her. Her condition is fine and she will be under observation at AIIMS for a day or so. The treatment for gall bladder stone will continue.
Gandhi has expressed her gratitude to all those who wished and prayed for her speedy recovery. Gandhi, 60, holds the Women and Child Development portfolio in the Narendra Modi government.
