Has Sonia gone back to London?

well-informed official claims that UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi has once again gone off on a private jet to London,”accompanied by the same Delhi doctor who has been taking care of her (medical) condition for the past year”. The official could not reveal the name of the hospital where Mrs Gandhi is presumed to have checked in for “intensive tests”,except to say that it was “the same as on two previous visits to the city”. According to him,Sonia Gandhi was accompanied out of Delhi by a close relative,”and two more have joined her there.”

Unlike the leaders of other democracies,who inform their citizens in detail about their medical condition and the treatment provided, there is a tradition in India of keeping the same as a state secret. Thus it was a shock to the country when Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru came down with a stroke in 1964,although those working closely with him had seen signs of tiredness and mental drift for several months previous to the neurological attack. P.V. Narasimha Rao and A.B. Vajpayee are other Prime Ministers who kept their medical conditions a secret, while President K R Narayanan shocked his Chinese hosts at Kunming when he could not disembark by ladder from his aircraft,and had to be taken down secretly by a ramp,the same used when food gets loaded onto flights.

Narasimha Rao and Vajpayee had prolonged periods of treatment, with medication that in the opinion of doctors affected their capacity to concentrate or even to work. However,both were dismissive of occasional reports of their being unwell. In the Vajpayee period, TIME magazine was placed in the doghouse after its Delhi correpondent penned a report on Vajpayee’s precarious state of health. However, none of the country’s previous leaders have gone as far as Sonia Gandhi in shooing off any reporting of her health. What seems clear, however, is that the Congress President is disappearing from view for long periods of time, and some of these disappearances are subsequently revealed to be for medical reasons. “Had she told the truth,Sonia would have won the respect and sympathy of her people.But keeping her medical condition secret is telling people that they dont deserve the privilege of knowing the truth about her health”. According to the official, Mrs Gandhi “has planned to return to Delhi immediately after the consultation.”

    Sonia Gandhi goes abroad for medical checks http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/cd3c8d70-620d-11e1-807f-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1spZDbbE6

    NEW DELHI – Sonia Gandhi, the head of India’s ruling Congress party, has travelled abroad for routine medical checks six months after undergoing surgery in the US, a spokesman for the party said on Tuesday.
    Mrs Gandhi will return in four to five days, said Janardan Dwivedi.
    The Congress party has never disclosed the condition of Mrs Gandhi, 65. Some media reports said she had received treatment at New York’s Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
    During her absence last year, she devolved part of her responsibilities to her son, Rahul, increasing speculation that he may soon take over from his mother as party leader and, eventually, take over as prime minister from Manmohan Singh.
    Mrs Gandhi, who was born in Italy, stayed out of the political limelight for several months after her surgery last August, a time when her party was grappling with corruption scandals and an ill-fated attempt to implement landmark reforms in India’s retail sector.
    But she returned to the campaign trail towards the end of last year to help lead the party in state elections that began last month. These include Uttar Pradesh, a state of 200m people on which Mr Gandhi has staked his political future.
    The Gandhi family, descended from India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, enjoys a status similar to royalty in the country of 1.2bn. They are not related to independence hero Mahatma Gandhi, a close ally of Nehru.
    Out of respect, normally clamorous 24-hour news stations have been almost silent on Mrs Gandhi’s condition or what her absence meant last year for running the world’s largest democracy.
    India’s main political parties also largely shied away from commenting on her condition and last year’s absence.
    Mrs Gandhi was married to Rajiv Gandhi, Nehru’s grandson and a former prime minister, who was killed by a suicide bomber in 1991 while campaigning for elections. His mother, Indira Gandhi, was also prime minister when she was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards in 1984.
    Mrs Gandhi is seen as the main driver for massive welfare and back-to-work schemes for the rural poor, a counterbalance to Mr Singh’s more reform-minded agenda.
    Often seen as the power behind the throne, after driving Congress to election victory in 2009 but declining to become prime minister, critics say Mrs Gandhi has been an ineffective leader who failed to halt corruption on her watch.

    Sonia in London?

    The AICC sources said that the AICC president Sonia Gandhi has apparently left for London two days ago-in a chartered flight-to undergo some special tests and diagnosis for Cancer. The sources even confirmed that the doctor-who had been curing Sonia for the past one year-also accompanied Sonia Gandhi to London.

    The sources, however, were reluctant to state in which hospital Sonia Gandhi was admitted to. We also have credible information that one of the close relatives of her also accompanied. Also, another two close relatives of Sonia Gandhi were reportedly taking care of her at the hospital.

    Sonia Gandhi is reportedly going to return India after the tests are completed. It may be recalled that Sonia Gandhi left for US a couple of months ago to take treatment for Cancer. Even that time too, there was no special announcement from the party as such.

    People in several parts of the country including Hyderabad were expecting speedy recovery of Sonia Gandhi when she was admitted to hospital. In fact, sea of people including youths were offering prayers at temple in Hyderabad for her well being then. (Phani)

    Indian Leader’s Illness Prompts Questions, but Also Restraint

    Sonia Gandhi, a powerful yet elusive figure in Indian politics, at a rally in April. On Aug. 4, her party said that she had gone to the United States for surgery to treat an undisclosed problem.
    By JIM YARDLEY
    Published: August 14, 2011

    NEW DELHI — It has been 11 days since the announcement of the disappearance of Sonia Gandhi, the most powerful political figure in India. From all corners of the country, people have offered prayers and good wishes, even her political enemies. Yet what is most intriguing is that so few people are demanding that she be found.

    Times Topic: India
    Mrs. Gandhi’s disappearance is voluntary, if startling. For more than a decade she has presided over the Indian National Congress Party, which made the Aug. 4 announcement such a surprise: she had left India for an undisclosed hospital in the United States to have surgery for an undisclosed condition.

    Questions begged for answers: Was her life in danger? Where was she? Would this affect the Congress Party-led coalition government? Yet few answers were provided.

    Even now, Congress officials have released only the basic facts that Mrs. Gandhi, 64, has undergone “successful” surgery, has been released from intensive care and should return to India in a few weeks.

    Rumors that she has cancer, or is being treated in New York, are unconfirmed. Some news outlets have published editorials calling for more disclosure. But in this raucously noisy political culture, Mrs. Gandhi’s health has mostly elicited silence.

    “The privacy of the family needs to be respected,” said Sudheendra Kulkarni, an opposition commentator and a critic. “It is not something that people are demanding to know.”

    Symbolically, Mrs. Gandhi’s health concerns mirror the weakened state of her party’s coalition government. The current session of Parliament has so far produced only rancor, as opposition parties have shut down proceedings with angry, theatrical protests against corruption. A new national poll found that the government’s credibility has been harmed by several major scandals, while critics and some allies complain of a leadership vacuum.

    Even before Mrs. Gandhi’s health problems, speculation had ebbed and flowed about whether Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would be moved aside before the next national elections in 2014. Mr. Singh and Mrs. Gandhi, who both enjoy reputations for rectitude, have dominated Indian politics since the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government took power in 2004. Recently, though, the effectiveness of their arrangement has seemed to falter.

    “It is perhaps the most directionless government the country has had in the last 20 years,” said Yogendra Yadav, a social scientist. “This is their seventh year in power, and people are beginning to see all the instances where the government isn’t delivering where it said it would.”

    Complaints are coming from all directions. Business leaders are frustrated over inaction on reforms on labor laws, foreign investment in retail and other issues. Social activists are planning a hunger strike to protest what they consider a watered-down bill to fight corruption. Leftists rail against rising inequality. A bill to create consistent, fair compensation policies when land is acquired for development is considered crucial, yet its passage is uncertain.

    The strength of the Singh-Gandhi partnership has been a mutual lack of ego and a division of duties. Mr. Singh, the scholarly economist, has overseen the government and steered foreign policy. Mrs. Gandhi, the shy, Italian-born widow of Rajiv Gandhi, the assassinated former prime minister, has managed the internal politics and election campaigns of the Congress Party.

    This role has made Mrs. Gandhi a ubiquitous figure at many party and government events, but otherwise she is largely shielded from public scrutiny. In the past decade, Mrs. Gandhi has almost never granted media interviews. Friends and political allies are loath to talk about her, knowing the family’s intense obsession with privacy. This desire to avoid the spotlight is considered one reason that Mrs. Gandhi, who has twice delivered the Congress Party to national power, did not appoint herself prime minister.

    Yet she has been a potent force on policy issues: She regularly meets with visiting heads of state and makes official overseas visits. She is an elected member of the lower house of Parliament. She also heads the National Advisory Council, a quasi-governmental body that writes social policy, a job that gives her a cabinet-level rank. And her influence is such that opposition leaders often belittle Mr. Singh as a junior partner.

    Her status is why a handful of news media outlets have protested the secrecy about her health. “In a democracy, the people have a right to know detailed information about the health of their leaders,” The Business Standard newspaper wrote in an editorial, asking whether public money was being used for her medical care and noting that the issue raised serious questions about the future of the Congress Party. “The entire nation would pray for her speedy recovery, but cannot be expected to shy away from raising these awkward questions.”

    Yet, for the most part, the questions have remained tamped down. Some Indian journalists say they consider the issue off limits. Mr. Kulkarni, the opposition commentator, said Indians, in general, did not believe it is appropriate to pry into private matters like health or marital issues that are considered fair game in many Western nations.

    “That just goes to show we are a different kind of society and we’re a different culture,” he said. “In a time like this, it is not proper to demand information and transparency.”

    At the Congress Party headquarters in New Delhi, Mrs. Gandhi’s office was chained and padlocked last week, a standard security procedure when she is away.

    Tom Vadakkan, secretary of the party’s media department, said the public supported her desire for privacy. “Medical conditions are sacrosanct in India,” he said. “Normally, we don’t discuss medical history.” He added: “If Mrs. Gandhi feels this is a private matter, we respect her privacy. I’m told she’s doing well. Maybe in three weeks she will be back with us.”

    Monday is Independence Day, the anniversary of India’s establishment as an independent democracy in 1947. Usually, Mrs. Gandhi raises a national flag on the grounds of the Congress Party headquarters; her absence this year will underscore questions about the future leadership. Her son, Rahul Gandhi, who heads the youth wing of the Congress Party, is her presumed heir and regarded as a likely future prime minister.

    In her absence, Mrs. Gandhi has appointed a committee of four people to run the party, including her son. He has been at her side during her convalescence, but The Indian Express newspaper reported Sunday that he was returning to New Delhi for the holiday.

    The Indian media is already asking whether he will be the one who raises the flag on Monday.

    NEW DELHI: The leader of India’s ruling party and head of its political dynasty, Sonia Gandhi, is to undergo surgery in the United States and will leave her son jointly in charge, a spokesman said on Thursday.

    Gandhi, 64, is to have an operation for an unspecified condition, ruling Congress spokesman Janardhan Dwivedi said, refusing to give further details.

    “On the advice of her doctors, she travelled abroad and she is likely to be away for two to three weeks,” Dwivedi said, adding that she would have the surgery in two to three days.

    Tehelka news magazine said on microblogging site Twitter that Gandhi was admitted on Thursday to New York’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the world’s largest private cancer centre according to the hospital website.

    According to Tehelka, renowned oncologist Dr Dattatreyudu Nori, director of the cancer centre at the New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens, is attending on Sonia Gandhi.

    Italian-born Gandhi is the widow of assassinated former premier Rajiv Gandhi and widely seen as India’s most powerful politician, with her key power-broking position as Congress president.

    Dwivedi said that in her absence, Gandhi had appointed a four-member group to handle the day-to-day running of the Congress — including her son Rahul Gandhi, who is tipped as a future prime minister.

    In January 2009, current Prime Minister Manmohan Singh underwent heart bypass surgery at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.

    The Nehru-Gandhi dynasty has ruled India for most of is post-independence history, with three members of the family becoming Prime Minister.

    Sonia Gandhi holds total sway within the Congress and is credited with crafting the strategies that gave the party back-to-back general election victories in 2004 and 2009.

    She will miss the start of a crucial session of parliament for the scandal-plagued government which intends to introduce draft laws on a range of key areas, including corruption, land acquisition and food security.

    Gandhi’s absence for the opening of the new session on Monday was noted in the Indian media but explained by an apparent “viral infection” she was said to be suffering from.

    Dwivedi initially said that Gandhi had already undergone surgery, but he later retracted the statement.

    The mother of two arrived in India as the shy bride of Rajiv Gandhi in her early 20s, and was transformed into a sari-clad Indian who now speaks fluent Hindi.

    Her years in the Gandhi household, when her autocratic mother-in-law Indira — slain in 1984 by her Sikh bodyguards — was premier, gave her an intimate insight into India’s turbulent politics.

    Rajiv Gandhi became premier in 1984 and was assassinated in 1991 by a suicide bomber.

    Sonia Gandhi, who has described herself as “a reluctant politician,” took charge of the Congress in 1998, becoming the fifth member of the powerful Nehru-Gandhi dynasty to serve as party chief.

    Although she was hailed as the architect of the 2004 election victory, she eschewed calls to become Prime Minister and handed the post to the current incumbent Singh, partly due to concerns about a political backlash over her foreign origins.

    The Bharatiya Janata Party, now the main opposition party, had once referred to her as a “foreign doll.”
