Due to COVID-19-related concerns, Congress President Sonia Gandhi has been hospitalised to Delhi’s Ganga Ram hospital.
On June 2, Sonia Gandhi tested positive for the coronavirus and requested extra time to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a money-laundering case.
On Sunday, June 12th, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted, “She is stable and will be kept at the hospital for observation.”
The agency had previously requested that he depose on June 2, but the Lok Sabha member from Kerala’s Wayanad constituency requested a new date because he was abroad of the country. Rahul Gandhi was later summoned to the federal agency’s headquarters in central Delhi on June 13.
Sonia Gandhi is resolved to appear before the ED once she recovers from the infection, according to Congress sources.
When Rahul Gandhi comes for questioning on Monday, the Congress, which claims the investigation is an attempt by the ruling BJP to settle political scores, is expected to stage a large protest.
The case concerns an investigation into alleged financial irregularities at the Young Indian newspaper, which is owned by the Congress-backed Young Indian.
