Indian National Congress President Sonia Gandhi has shifted to Goa for a few days on Friday. The sudden shift has been made after the INC chief was being advised to move out of Delhi for a few days to avoid the ‘poor’ air quality in the National Capital in view of her chronic chest infection. Sonia Gandhi was seen arriving in Panaji on Friday afternoon accompanied by Rahul Gandhi.
After their arrival at the Dabolim International Airport, Sonia Gandhi and her son left for a south Goa resort, where she is expected to stay for a few days.
“The air pollution in Delhi has aggravated her asthma and her chest condition, and she has been advised by doctors to briefly move out from Delhi,” a party source said. It is to be noted that Sonia Gandhi has been under heavy medication pursuant to her discharge from hospital in August, and doctors are concerned about her consistent chest infection, which has not gone on account of Delhi’s pollution, the sources added.
