NEW DELHI: Congress chief Sonia Gandhi is on the road to recovery as she walked and did some exercises today, three days after she underwent a surgery on her left shoulder, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where she is admitted, said today.

Her condition is "stable" and all vital parameters are normal, the hospital said in its latest medical bulletin on the veteran leader's health status.
