Sonia Gandhi's mysterious treatment costs Rs 1,880 cr: Swamy
According to Swamy, a total of Rs 1,880 crore was spent by Sonia on her US medical treatment and the Janata Party chief believes that Mrs Gandhi might be sent a PIL soon.
While tweeting from his Twitter account, Swamy said, "Narendra Modified has disclosed that Rs 1880 crores were spent by Sonia on her US medical treatment. Who paid? PIL coming soon."
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hurled few questions at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Mrs Gandhi over UPA Government's "wasteful expenditure".
Modi criticised the Centre for questioning Gujarat govt for spending money on festivities and celebrations and also claimed that Gujarat should not be questioned on the same when the central government has itself spent Rs 1,880 crore for Mrs Gandhi's foreign trips and "treatment abroad" over three years.
Criticising Congress and Rahul Gandhi, Swamy also added, "Congi rattled that Modi and I are speaking in the same tenor about Tadakka. Soon Buddhu too under pincer attack. Munich under siege."
Mrs Gandhi had gone abroad on Sept 1 and returned only after one week. Congress spokesperson Janardan Dwivedi had informed about her abroad visit but did not disclose the real reason regarding her treatment. [Read: Mystery over Mrs Gandhi's treatment, goes abroad again]
On Aug 2011, for the first time, Mrs Gandhi had gone to US for surgery. Keeping all the mystery intact, her party did not disclose the hospital's name or any other information regarding her diagnosis. However, reports suggested that she was suffering from Cancer.
Mrs Gandhi went for second check on Feb 27, 2012 when she had faced protest in the country.
Sikh community in the US - Sikh for Justice (SFJ) protested against the Congress president and demanded her exclusion from the country.
Later, when Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni was asked if any government funds had been spent on Gandhi's travel, hospitalisation and treatment and security, the minister snubbed all questions saying that government would announce the details later. However, no such detailed information regarding Mrs Gandhi's check up has been made yet.
