New Delhi, Sep 22 Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who had been abroad for a medical check-up, returned to India on Tuesday accompanied by her son Rahul Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi had left the country earlier this month for a “routine medical check-up”. Congress president Sonia Gandhi had left for the United States on September 12 for a routine medical check-up, sources close to her had said. They said Sonia Gandhi’s medical checkup was overdue and was delayed due to the Covid- 19 pandemic. Both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul have missed a major part of the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament, which is likely to be curtailed after many political parties agreed to cut it short amid a rising number of Covid-19 cases. Sonia Gandhi has returned at a time when the Opposition, including the Congress, is locked in a standoff with the government over farm bills. On Tuesday, opposition parties staged a walkout from Rajya Sabha and decided to boycott proceedings of the House, even as the government insisted on their apology. Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said they would boycott the proceedings till the suspension of members is revoked and also demanded that the government bring another bill to ensure that no private player should buy food grains from farmers below the MSP fixed by the government. Eight members of Rajya Sabha were on Monday suspended over their "unruly behaviour" during the passage of the two key farm bills on Sunday. Those suspended included Rajeev Satav.
