Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi was making steady progress, two days after she underwent a surgery to repair a shoulder injury, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where she has been admitted, said on Friday.

“Mrs Sonia Gandhi has been shifted out of the ICU and is making steady progress in the hospital. She was admitted under Dr Arup Basu and his team from Department of Pulmonology and has been operated for a shoulder injury by a team of Dr Sanjay Desai from Mumbai and Dr Prateek Gupta, Orthopedic Consultant from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital,” according to a health bulletin issued by Dr D S Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) of the hospital.

69-year-old Gandhi was shifted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital on Wednesday from the Army Research and Referral Hospital, where she was rushed soon after her arrival from Varanasi around midnight on Tuesday.

She had to cut short her roadshow in Varanasi after she was taken ill. She had fractured her left shoulder during the roadshow.
