Gandhi, who has been spearheading the UPA's ambitious food security bill, left the Lok Sabha while the voting was underway on Monday night on various amendments moved by the Opposition.

She has been admitted into the Cardio Neuro Tower at the AIIMS.

"There is nothing to worry. She is completely fine", said senior Congress leader Janardhan Dwivedi, a close aide of the Gandhi family, as several leaders of the Congress made a beeline to AIIMS to inquire about Sonia's condition.

Dwivedi said that based on the available information from doctors some medicines did not suit her and problems erupted because of their reactions.

"The Congress president has appealed that everyone should leave the hospital," he said.

The sources said Sonia underwent some tests including an ECG and is under observation at AIIMS where top doctors of the institute including its director R C Deka are attending on her.

Balram Airon, Head of Cardio-Thoracic surgery department, is monitoring Sonia's health condition.

Security has been tightened in and around AIIMS.

In a tweet, Senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj wished Sonia a speedy recovery.

Gandhi was seen leaving Parliament around 9pm, being helped by Union minister Kumari Selja. Her son and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi also accompanied her.

She had viral fever since Sunday night and doctors examined her at her home, sources said.

"She looked exhausted when she was brought to AIIMS. We will be observing her for a while. There seems nothing to worry. It could be general uneasiness due to exhaustion," said the source.

She is likely to be discharged either late in the night or early Tuesday morning.

Earlier in the day, Gandhi led the party in the debate on the landmark bill describing it as a measure to wipe out hunger from the country.

Declaring Congress' goal to "wipeout hunger and malnutrition", she asked all political parties to set aside differences and support the bill so that a "big message" could be sent out about India's capabilities.

Opening the Congress innings on the debate in Lok Sabha on food bill, she rejected questions over whether the country had resources to implement the landmark measure.

"It is time to send out a big message that India can take responsibility of ensuring food security for all Indians, our goal is to wipe out hunger and malnutrition all over the country," Gandhi said about her pet agenda.
