Earlier, in December 2018, Gadkari was on a stage when he fainted and almost fell down. Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, who was also on the stage, caught hold of Gadkari. Gadkari was then taken to a hospital in Nagpur in a private plane.

In April this year, Gadkari fainted on stage during an election rally near Shirdi in Maharashtra.
