The Bharatiya Janata Party leader was campaigning at Pusad which comes under the Yavatmal-Washim Lok Sabha constituency.

 

As he suffered a fainting fit, the security personnel accompanying him carried him off-stage.

The minister, however, recovered after a few minutes and completed his speech.

'Felt uneasy due to heat at a rally at Pusad, Maharashtra. But now I am completely alright and on my way to Warud to take part in the next rally,' the 66-year-old leader said in a post on X.
