Sonia Gandhi undergoes “successful” surgery

Hello again :)

Sonia Gandhi, the most powerful person in India underwent a “successful” surgery. She is recovering now…

The Italian-born Mrs Gandhi, 64, holds no official government post but is seen as India’s most powerful politician. She was suffering from a mysterious ailment and she went to a mysterious location and finally some mysterious medical experts did a successful surgery and she is alright now…

She is likely to be away from “home” for two to three weeks.

Mrs Gandhi has named a four-member team to run party affairs during her absence. The team includes her son and MP Rahul Gandhi, who is tipped as a future prime minister.

Mrs Gandhi is the widow of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. She nominated Manmohan Singh to the prime minister’s post in 2004 but is frequently portrayed as being more powerful than him.

She is at the head of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, which has ruled India for most of the time since the country gained independence from British colonial rule in 1947.

The silence has, however, its flip side.

The secrecy on the the nature of the disease Gandhi is suffering from has fueled speculation that she is suffering from cancer.

Informed sources said she was being treated at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York. The hospital has, however, refused to confirm or deny she was admitted there.

As for the Congress, it has said that Gandhi is not suffering from cancer.
