Union minister Nitin Gadkari

fainted during a public event in Maharashtra's Ahmednagar

district Friday.

The 61-year-old BJP leader attributed the incident to

low sugar in his body.

"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," Gadkari tweeted.

Gadkari fainted at the convocation of the agriculture

university at Rahuri while the national anthem was being sung,

a official said.

A video grab of the event shows Maharashtra Governor

Ch Vidyasagar Rao, who was standing beside him, supporting him

while he fainted.

Gadkari was examined by a team of doctors present at

the venue. His blood pressure was checked and he remained on

his chair for about 10 minutes, after which he walked to his

vehicle and proceeded to the nearby helipad.

The minister later flew to his home town Nagpur as per

schedule, an aide of the minister told PTI.
