Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday expressed his happiness over the recovery of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who was admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) hospital on Monday night for around five hours.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) poll panel chief posted a tweet on Tuesday morning, saying, "Glad to know that Sonia ji's health is fine. Wishing her the best of health for the future."
Modi, however, also expressed concern that "basic medical emergency procedures" were not used. He said that the UPA chairperson should have been taken from Parliament in a wheelchair or stretcher.
"Concerned that basic medical emergency procedures were not used. Would have been better if wheelchair or stretcher were used in Parliament," tweeted the Gujarat Chief Minister.
The BJP leader further pointed that the Congress president should have been taken in a "well-equipped ambulance".
He tweeted, "Considering her health, Sonia ji should have been taken to hospital in a well-equipped ambulance. Still, doctors are best judges."
The Congress president was briefly admitted to AIIMS hospital on Monday night, and discharged at around 1.30 am on Tuesday. She was rushed to AIIMS after she started feeling unwell while the voting for Food Security Bill was going on in Lok Sabha.
Sonia was admitted to the cardiology unit after she complained of exhaustion and was undergoing check ups, hospital sources said, adding that her condition was stable and there was no cause for concern.
Sonia was seen leaving Parliament at 8:15 pm, being helped by Union minister Kumari Selja. Her son and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi also accompanied her.
