Gandhi spent an hour in the hospital enquiring about Kanshi Ram's health.
After the BSP leader was hospitalised last week following a brain stroke, the Congress president had sent him a bouquet.

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit also visited the hospital. She was accompanied by Delhi Transport Minister Ajay Maken.

A press release issued by the hospital said there was overall improvement in Kanshi Ram's health and he is no longer on life support system.

With Mayawati looking for a political partner and Congress a hand to prop it up in Uttar Pradesh, Sonia's meeting with Mayawati has set Delhi abuzz with speculation.
