New Delhi, April 21 (ANI): The scorching heat of Delhi proved too much for the Bharatiya Janata Party President, Nitin Gadkari, on Wednesday, as he fainted during a protest march organised against price rise in the country.
Gadkari was leading the BJP march, headed towards Jantar Mantar at Parliament Street from Ramlila Maidan, when he fainted.
However, Gadkari resumed his march after a short while.
"Gadkari ji's health is now okay," said Vijay Jolly, President of BJP's Delhi Unit, to mediapersons.
Meanwhile, in the morning, life was thrown out of gear for office-goers, as huge crowds of BJP supporters were approaching the Ramlila Maidan, the venue for the public rally.
Long traffic snarls made it quite difficult for people to commute at many places across the capital, as hundreds of thousands of BJP supporters converged for the public rally.
The rally,which has been organized to showcase the public anger against the steeply rising prices of commodities, drew BJP supporters from across the country. (ANI)
