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.

      When, according to Modi, every person is important, an ordinary Indian is not airlifted for treatment? Even today wheel chair was not provided to a patient, the poor lady had to drag her husband on the floor for ultrasound. For some airlift, for some no wheel chair. Modi talks only, nothing on the ground.

          She. Caused the deaths of numerous hapless people attacked by mad ferocious stray dogs . She preferred dogs to humans . As she is ai she is in effect holding a mirror to the meagrely devoloped constiruency that she represents where a well equipped hospital even for minor surgery is con uous by its absence . Wishing her a speedy recovery

            Doesn't Pilibhit have a decent hospital? She has been an MP from there for ages and look at the development of that place! That says all about our politicians too.
