Priyanka Gandhi admitted to hospital
Priyanka Gandhi has been admitted to a hospital in Delhi. She was diagnosed with dengue fever. She is currently being treated at the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi.
"Priyanka had fever initially, later she was confirmed as suffering from dengue. She was brought to the hospital on August 23 evening according to D S Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) of SRGH. The doctors treating her say that she is recovering well.
She was recently in the news after reports emerged that her mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi was planning an active role for her in politics. The Congress however termed the news as a mischievous instance of fake news.
Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma said the news report was "laughable" and "planted".
"This is laughable that the media takes planted news seriously. This is mischievous and a fabrication," he said.
"We reject it but let me caution the media, don't walk into a trap of planted news. This is to distract attention and focus from what is happening -- from the failures of this government, non-performance, non-deliverance, rising terror attacks and killings of soldiers and jawans," he also added.
