New Delhi: Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways of India Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday fainted and fell on the stage as he was delivering a speech in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district as part of his poll campaign for Lok Sabha Elections 2024. The BJP leader was campaigning at Pusad which comes under the Yavatmal-Washim Lok Sabha constituency, news agency PTI reported.

As he suffered a fainting fit, the security personnel accompanying him carried him off-stage, the report said. The minister, however, recovered after a few minutes and completed his speech.

Nearly an hour after the report first emerged, Gadkari took to social media platform ‘X’ to announce that he is now “completely healthy”, even as the union minister expressed gratitude towards his well-wishers “for your love and good wishes”.

“I felt uncomfortable due to the heat during the rally in Pusad, Maharashtra. But now I am completely healthy and am leaving for Varud to attend the next meeting. Thank you for your love and good wishes”, Gadkari wrote in a post on ‘X’.
