Union minister Nitin Gadkari fainted during an election rally in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district on Wednesday afternoon.

In the video doing rounds on social media, the Union Minister could be seen dizzy and unconscious as people tried to carry him off the stage. Some could be even heard making calls for doctors.

Shortly after the incident, Gadkari provided an update on his health saying that he felt uncomfortable due to the heat during the rally.

“Now I am completely healthy and am leaving for Varud to attend the next meeting. Thank you for your love and good wishes,” he wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Gadkari, who fought the elections in the first phase of voting as BJP's candidate from Nagpur Lok Sabha seat, was campaigning for Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena leader Rajashree Patil in Yavatmal's Pusad.

Addressing the rally, the union minister said, “I am confident that the people of Yavatmal district, which has a constant tendency towards development, will give victory to the BJP-Maha alliance, which believes in all-round development.”

“While moving towards a developed India, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, significant work has been done in the last 10 years in the areas of roads and highways as well as education, health, and other sectors across the country.

"Various schemes of the central government were successfully extended to the rural areas. Due to this, along with the city, the people of the rural areas are also able to benefit from many important facilities," he said.
