New Delhi : Congress chief Sonia Gandhi is on the road to recovery as she walked and did some exercises today, three days after she underwent a surgery on her left shoulder, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where she is admitted, said today.
Her condition is “stable” and all vital parameters are normal, the hospital said in its latest medical bulletin on the veteran leader’s health status.

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.
