vice-president would be accompanying Sonia.

"President,Smt. Sonia Gandhi, is traveling abroad for a health check-up. VP Shri Rahul Gandhi, shall travel there today to be with her and accompany President on the return journey," spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.

Owing to her ill health, Sonia had not campaigned in the recently concluded five-state assembly elections.

Rahul's trip comes amid growing criticism both inside and outside party of his handling of the elections, where the Party was crushed in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh and couldn't form its government in Goa and Manipur despite emerging as the single-largest party.

Rahul has, however, promised an organisational overhaul and introspection over the results.
