On the morning of Tuesday 27th August 2013 Shri Narendra Modi expressed concern on the health of UPA Chairperson Smt. Sonia Gandhi. He also prayed for her good health in future. He also added that considering her ill health, Smt. Sonia Gandhi should have been taken to hospital in a well-equipped ambulance.
He went on to Tweet, “Concerned that basic medical emergency procedures were not used. Would have been better if wheelchair or stretcher were used in Parliament” and “Considering her health, Sonia ji should have been taken to hospital in a well-equipped ambulance. Still, doctors are best judges.”
