Union Minister Nitin Gadkari Faints During Election Rally

Mumbai: Union Minister and BJP leader Nitin Gadkari momentarily fainted during an election rally in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district on Wednesday afternoon. The incident occurred while Gadkari was addressing the crowd, but he quickly recovered and resumed his speech after receiving immediate medical attention.

A video circulating on social media captured the moment when Gadkari fell unconscious on stage and was swiftly carried away by those around him. Concerned BJP leaders can be heard calling for medical assistance in the footage.

Following the incident, Gadkari took to social media to reassure his well-wishers about his health. In his update, he attributed the fainting spell to discomfort caused by the heat during the rally.

Thank you for your love and good wishes.”

Gadkari, who contested from Nagpur Lok Sabha seat in the first phase of voting as BJP’s candidate, was campaigning for Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena leader Rajashree Patil in Yavatmal’s Pusad at the time of the incident. Yavatmal constituency of Maharashtra is slated to vote in the second phase of the Lok Sabha election on April 26.
