Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who was on a visit to Shimla, was on Friday rushed back to the capital and admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital after she complained of stomach upset.

Son and party vice president said she is "much better" and there is "nothing to worry".

D S Rana, Chairman (Board of Management) of the Ganga Ram Hospital said that Gandhi, 70, is under observation.

"was brought to the hospital at 5 PM today. She has been found to be suffering from stomach upset and has been admitted for observation," said Rana in a statement.

later tweeted, "Ma was in Shimla and caught a stomach bug so we got her back. Nothing to worry, she's much better. Thanks for the tremendous love and concern."

According to sources, Gandhi was rushed to the hospital in an air-ambulance from Shimla, where she had gone for a vacation.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said on Twitter: "Congress President was indisposed with a minor issue and is absolutely fine and healthy. We thank all well wishers for the concern."

A team of doctors from the hospital was deputed to bring her back from Shimla.
