NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Sonia Gandhi, the head of India's ruling Congress party, has travelled abroad for routine medical checks, six months after undergoing surgery in the United States, a spokesman for the party said on Tuesday.
Gandhi will return in 4-5 days, Janardan Dwivedi said in a statement.
The Congress party has never disclosed the condition for which Gandhi was treated last year. Some media reports said it was cancer.
