New Delhi: Congress on Saturday said Sonia
Gandhi`s health is fine and she is looking after party work
thoroughly.

"As far Soniaji`s health is concerned, she is perfectly
fine and looking after the party work thoroughly," party
spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.

Speculation over Gandhi`s health had gained momentum
after she underwent a surgery in the US in August last year.
There were also reports that Rahul Gandhi could have a larger
role in the Congress organisation and could become Working
President or even President of the party replacing her.

Sources close to Rahul Gandhi as well as in the top
leadership of Congress have so far, however, have denied any
such plans.
Senior party leaders like Digvijay Singh and Janardan
Dwivedi have at the same time maintained that Rahul Gandhi`s
role is constantly rising in the party affairs and it is also
the wish of Congressmen.
