Union minister and senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari fainted on stage while addressing an election rally in Maharashtra's Yavatmal on Wednesday. Gadkari was immediately rushed for treatment.

While addressing the crowd at an election rally in Yavatmal's Pusad, Gadkari suddenly felt unconscious and collapsed on stage. Swift action was taken by his party members, who promptly caught the senior leader and rushed him to receive medical assistance.

However, the minister later tweeted to say that he felt uncomfortable due to the heat, adding that he was fine and on his way to attend the next election rally in Varud.

"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," Nitin Gadkari tweeted.

Gadkari, the BJP's candidate from Nagpur which went to polls in the first phase, was campaigning for Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena leader Rajashree Patil, who is the ruling Mahayuti alliance's nominee from the Yavatmal-Washim Lok Sabha seat.

Yavatmal, along with Buldhana, Akola, Amravati, Wardha, Hingoli, Nanded, and Parbhani in Maharashtra, is scheduled to vote in the second phase of the Lok Sabha election on April 26, Friday.

Yavatmal, situated in Vidarbha in the east-central region of Maharashtra, has been grappling with intense heatwave conditions. Notably, the weather department has issued a heatwave alert for several areas in Maharashtra in the days to come.
