Congress President Sonia Gandhi has gone to the United States, to undergo surgery for a medical condition, which the party did not disclose. Making a bare announcement, Congress general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi, told reporters in Parliament House that the 64-year-old leader was recently diagnosed with a medical condition and has been advised surgery. "On the advise of her doctors, she has travelled abroad and she is likely to be away for two-three weeks," he said. Replying to questions, he said, "We have just got information that the surgery is successful and her condition is satisfactory". But later he clarified that the surgery has not yet been carried out and that it could take place in a day or two.
