Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday fainted on the stage during a public event being organised in Ahmadnagar. The video of Gadkari fainting has gone viral since then.
The minister later took to Twitter to inform that his health had deteriorated due to low sugar adding that he was fine now. He wrote, “Had slight medical condition due to low sugar. I have been attended by doctors and i am doing well now. I thank all of you for all the well wishes.”

No sooner did his video go viral, social media users began to wish him with ‘get well soon’ messages.
Suddenly I got shocked while watching a live programme I saw @nitin_gadkari falling unconscious. But I am glad that he is stable now. I pray God for his healthy life

Gadkari, formerly the national president of the BJP, currently holds several portfolios in the Centre’s Narendra Modi government including Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Water Resources and River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation. He’s one of the very few union ministers, who is respected by people cutting across political ideologies.
