Lucknow: Union minister Maneka Gandhi, who has been diagnosed with gallstones, will undergo surgery at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the next few days, her son and BJP MP Varun Gandhi said on Saturday.

"My mother was admitted to AIIMS last night, where she will undergo surgery in the next few days. I thank everyone for their blessings and prayers," Varun said in a tweet from his official handle.

The women and child development (WCD) minister on Friday complained of stomach pain while she was on a visit to her constituency Pilibhit and was rushed to New Delhi. She had earlier been taken to a hospital in Pilibhit where an ultrasound detected stones in her gall bladder, District Magistrate Sheetal Verma said.

Gandhi, 60, had held a meeting with the district magistrate and the superintendent of police at Pilibhit on Friday morning after which she went to a guesthouse at Bisalpur road where she complained of stomach pain and breathing trouble.
