Swaroop also clarified that speculations contrary to this, in certain sections of media, are entirely false and unwarranted.

Gandhi was admitted under the care of Arup Kumar Basu, senior consultant and chairman of respiratory medicine and he is leading a team of doctors who are closely monitoring her.

According to doctors, the problem is quite common in the winter season.

There has been a lot of speculation about Sonia Gandhi's health after her 2011 surgery in the US where she spent about five weeks and reportedly underwent a successful surgery at New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

According to media reports, she was also treated for mild asthma for six days in 2008.

Ahead of the Tripura assembly polls in February 2013, Gandhi, who was scheduled to address two election meetings in the state, cancelled her visit due to ill health and in April 2014, she again cancelled her day-long tour of Maharashtra citing health reasons.
