As Cabinet grappled with the issue of ordinance on convicted lawmakers, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi visited the Army's Research and Referral Hospital to enquire about the health of Defence Minister AK Antony.
Antony had undergone a prostate surgery at the hospital here recently.
Sonia and Rahul were with Antony for 50 minutes. The senior Congress leader is a trusted associate of both the leaders who often consult him on various issues.
Antony could not be present at the meeting of the Congress Core Group earlier in the day when the issue of the ordinance was discussed threadbare.
