‘Nothing to Worry About’: Nitin Gadkari After Fainting On Stage
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, who fainted at a public event in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar district on Friday, 7 December, said that he is fine and there’s nothing to worry about.
Gadkari had fainted at the convocation ceremony in an agriculture university in Rahuri while the national anthem was being sung.
A video grab of the event shows Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, who was standing beside him, supporting him as he collapsed.
The 61-year-old BJP leader also took to Twitter to thank people for their wishes.
"Had slight medical condition due to low sugar. I have been attended by doctors and I am doing well now. I thank all of you for all the well wishes," Gadkari tweeted.
The minister later flew to his home town in Nagpur as per schedule, an aide of the minister told PTI.
