Union minister Nitin Gadkari fainted on stage on Saturday at an election rally near Shirdi in Maharashtra.

The BJP leader soon recovered and later walked to his car.

Gadkari was campaigning at Rahata for the Shiv Sena candidate for the Shirdi Lok Sabha seat, Sadashiv Lokhande.

After finishing his speech, Gadkari was walking back to his seat on the stage when he fainted. His security guards and BJP leaders rushed to his help.

Within a few minutes, the road and transport minister recovered. Later, he visited the Saibaba temple after undergoing check-up.

On December 7, 2018, Gadkari had lost consciousness during a convocation at the agricultural university in Maharashtra’s Rahuri. He had attributed it to low sugar levels.
